This afternoon, Redchurch Brewery in East London, posted this on twitter. It is a petition to stop them being granted a license to sell alcohol offsales.
Now, let's for a minute put aside the fact that whoever typed up this nonsense is barely literate and concentrate on some facts.
Redchurch want the license so they can sell to the public between the hours of ...
11am - 4pm Saturday
9am - 6pm Monday - Friday.
Hardly what I'd call 'late night' or antisocial. And as for talking about abusing children, I don't think that Redchurch have any plans to add that to the license, indeed that's a ridiculous conclusion to come to.
This is the sort of reaction I would expect from an uneducated redneck like Joe McCarthy 50 years ago when communists were everywhere and they were all out to get him! Isn't it ironic that he too, died of alcoholism, just like so many of those innocent underage children are going to. Puurrrrleeesse.
I can understand that they might think their little darlings will get abused and molested by CAMRA members trying to get their hands on some beer, after all they dress as an homage to Fritzel and wear their beards like Shipman so they can seem a bit scary at times, but really most of them are quite harmless and indeed are very friendly(for the most part), even if they do smell of wee.
I'm also wondering how Redchurch got their hands on this...Any enlightenment, Gary?
