Sunday...a day of rest...possibly

Wetherspoons & England Supporters
We heard a tale yesterday (Saturday) about the latest problems encountering anyone rash enough to be a supporter of England and be proud of it.

In the Yeovil Wetherspoons pub this week and man and his family were asked to leave the bar because the child, THE CHILD was wearing an England shirt!

Are the bar staff and Management stark staring mad or has some policy diktat been handed down from on high? The chain is crowing about its three new 'England World Cup Ales' on its web site, while at the same time apparently denying England supporters of the ability (age permitting) to drink those celebratory beers.

Top marks Wetherspoons for how to alienate your customers base, not since the Gerald Ratner clanger has someone done such a great job of pissing off their customers.
