JD Wetherspoon boss makes EU message clear on new beer mats

By Alan Jones

The Northern Irish founder of pub company JD Wetherspoon has printed 200,000 beer mats bearing a hard-hitting message urging the UK to leave the EU.

They will be available in its 920 UK pubs - including nine in Northern Ireland - in the run-up to the June 23 referendum.

The beer mat has a message on both sides, which is signed by Wetherspoon founder and chairman Tim Martin, a strong believer in leaving the EU.

Mr Martin, a former pupil of Campbell College, said: "The Government has paraded a number of financial institutions in front of the public, who have, in my view, grossly distorted our financial prospects in the event of a Brexit."
