Fake News

How delightful to have received a copy of Wetherspoon News through the door yesterday, absolutely free (if also entirely uninvited). This esteemed publication - which is in no way a shitty propaganda rag for the views of founder Tim Martin - boasts of being "read by 2 million customers". Nah, they just look at the pictures and use it to mop up lager and sick on the tables.

The cover story is headlined "CIRCLE OF DECEIT: How the metropolitan elite tried to con the British public about the need for a 'deal' with the EU - and about food prices post Brexit". On the contents page, however, they promise an article that "tries to present both sides of the argument in respect of the EU". They clearly weren't trying very hard.
