  1. Crooked drinks companies bosses are telling you porkie pies lies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fake news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fake news alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lock them up!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lock these liars up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Deport them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Can someone please drown Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn in a vat of Bombay Sapphire? I don’t like that gin anyway. I like Hendricks.

  3. I dont know why anyone would call this fake news. Its simple economics, the pond has dropped, therefore any company purchasing ingredients from abroad is paying more for them, once their previous stock run out they have cost increase. They are mearly passing that on to the customers.

    I guess some people don’t like the responsibility that comes with their decision making….
