OK, we've established that cheap mass-produced beer in the supermarkets is playing a role in deterring people from going to the pub. So far, so good.
To get people back in the pubs how about getting the government to create minimum prices for supermarket beer? Hmm.
Isn't that a bit bloody rich coming from a self-proclaimed "consumer organisation" which encourages people to join with rabble-rousing rhetoric like "join us if you're concerned about the ever-rising price of beer"? (I haven't got a specific example to hand a.t.m but we've all seen it).
Now let me think about it for a nano-second ... ah, now I see: CAMRA wants prices increases for the beer it doesn't like (consumed by the majority); It wants lower prices for the beer it likes (a minority interest).
A consumer organisation my arse! A self-interest group looking for special case treatment by pretending to have everyone's best interest at heart.
Sheer bloody hypocracy.
Excuse me while I wipe up the beer I've just spluttered on my keyboard.
