British man commits treason

Two posts in one day – sorry, sorry but this had to be said. They can’t keep their f***ing hands off anything, can they?

It’s the utter complacency in suggesting forced changes and dispossession of others which gets up my nose summit awful. Question – what is British beer served in? Of course it’s pints and halves. It’s not 600ml or 350ml or whatever – it’s PINTS.

I don’t read the Guardian because it just gets my blood boiling – better to leave the interfering do-gooders to Julia to dissect as a rule but Chuckles tricked me with a blog post which linked back to … yep, the Guardian. What is it with the brains of those people? I’d love to see scans done.

The pint glass is an outdated relic and beer drinkers have been subjected to it for too long. It’s time to put it out to pasture, says Ben McFarland

Who f***ing asked you, you prat? Look, just come in, sit in the middle and don’t touch anything. Don’t tell us your musings about what you’d like to change in British life to make it more foreign, don’t tell us anything. Least of all, don’t hide behind a column where comment, far from being free, is cut off because people don’t like what you say.

Just keep the f*** out of our lives, don’t put your politics onto us coz we’re not interested. Smile inanely at whoever you want and offer to help change their lives and we’ll drop you off on the mainland when we next reach port. There’s a good chap.

Now, about that other topic – bringing back hanging, drawing and quartering for treason …

    Who can afford to go to the pub anyway?

    I don’t drink beer, but as an erstwhile barman, the pint glass is a nice size to handle. Just right, really, which is probably why it has survived. Some things are just “right” and are not, therefore an anachronism. The man is an idiot. But then, the Guardian…

      The move was part of the coalition’s “nudge” approach to improving the health of the nation, and while the majority of bars have yet to embrace the modest measure for fear of selling less beer, the idea is catching on in an increasing number of specialist craft beer venues.

      Fuck me. It’s enough to drive me to drink – in a pint measure, too.

    It’s the EU metric, conform ye will, everything to do with imperial units, avoirdupois always far superior to the metric system but therein lies another tale.

    UK beer was typically weaker than the continental stuff 2-4% compared to 5-6% or more for some of the insane Belgian stuff. Thus pints not girly stem glasses.

    Why this interests Ben McFarland simply baffles me.

    James, these people never stop. They must lie awake a night thinking of more ways to destroy our nation. It’s deliberate and it’s focussed. Until the perpetrators are dealt with, they will continue in the destructive process.

    A pint is just the right size for a good beer.

    He seems like a worthy recipient for some tar and feathers.

    Excuse my bad language, but he wrote this:

    “Design aside, you’ve got to question the capacity. The pint is too much. ”

    What a wanker.

    “Design aside, you’ve got to question the capacity. The pint is too much. ”

    Well then, order a half pint or don’t drink what you don’t want.
