You could die of thirst in here!

In a move branded as ‘bizarre’, Westminster City Council have demanded that the Newman Arms serve its customers more slowly in an attempt to prevent excessive numbers congregating on the pavement outside the pub. Apparently the licensees put the idea forward as a joke, but the council took them up on their suggestion.

Presumably they will welcome more branches of J. D. Wetherspoon opening up on their patch, then...


  1. just shows how ridiculous Westminster City Council are. It's run by utter morons.

  2. That's democracy for you, got any ideas for a better system?
