Ian Burdon Obit: The Death of the English Pub. (59* d) RE: Obit: The Death of the English Pub. 22 Feb 09

No: the problem is neither the long overdue smoking ban nor the breathaliser; the problem is the strand of capitalism which commoditises everything and defines value solely by reference to the potential for financial return for shareholders of GreedCorp.

Got a brewery that makes good beer? Buy it out, fire the brewers, make something which tastes vaguely similar in a chemical plant and exploit the brand name. Own a good pub in a decent location? Check out the land value and build on it.
