Dim Tim Martin’s Doom

Nikolay Kalinin on extremist Brexiteer Tim Martin moaning about shortages at Wetherspoons being caused ironically by Brexit; ‘Dim Martin’ should blame himself only for such a situation

It has recently been revealed that Wetherspoons – owned by Brexiteer Tim Martin – has been facing shortages partly due to ironically enough, Brexit. One branch for example put up a sign saying it has run out of Bud Light, Carling and Coors due to lorry driver shortages.

 

A spokesperson for the company stated: “We are experiencing some supply problems with both Carling and Coors, which means that some pubs do not have the products available. We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused. We know that the brewers are trying to resolve the issue.”

 

Martin – not having learnt from his mistakes from June – told The i that the shortages were due to industrial action, stating: “Last week, we understand, there was industrial action by delivery drivers acting on behalf of Heineken, our biggest supplier.”

 

“As a result of a shortage of deliveries of Heineken, some other products ran out in some locations – for example Carling and Coors lagers.”

 

However, Heineken were keen to point out to the paper that shortage of hauliers was the cause of shortages and that the strike action was canceled on 20th August.

 

The shortages were mocked on the Internet, with many making fun of Martin for his blind support for Brexit, including him printing out 200,000 bear mats which advocated for Britain leaving the EU.

 

Meanwhile, political activist Femi Oluwole wrote in his column for The Independent: “Can you imagine the entertainment value of watching Brexiteers argue with their past selves from 2016? The ratings alone would boost the economy so much we’d soon forget about Brexit and Covid.”

 

There is no denying that COVID-19 had a massive impact on the supply chain, because the 60,000 drivers from EU who left the UK were unable to come back. However, the new restricting immigration system has also meant that many of those workers were reluctant to return.

 

It looks like the sunny uplands of post-Brexit Britain are a bit more stormy that one could have expected, and that’s something that hardcore Brexiteers like Tim Martin and Nigel Farage truly need to accept and acknowledge.

  1. I have long observed that this disastrous move for Britain was conjured and whipped up by lies and spin from just a few odd-balls and band-wagon jumpers like Rasputin-Cummings and Johnson. Like perhaps The Gas Law that they are all full of PV=NRT time and again it proves to hold true:-

    Anal Fussy Prat [P]
    Narrow (perceived) Indignant Hump Worthy Vector – say Brexit [V]
    Equals [=]
    Nonsense-icicle Myopic Mobilization [N]
    Obsessive Ranting [R]
    Enhanced Twat [T]

    Such a shame the above has dragged his customers through his BS: When all of what is left of The Invisible’s sector has finally tiddled off to Europe and taken all of our money with it and all of the Countries Farmers are bankrupt (that will teach them), when The Union has been broken up and the rest of us cannot go anywhere to get away from the shortages without asking fellow Europeans nicely then these characters can properly answer for their silly and indignant indulgences.

    • Oh just perhaps to add that in real terms the 8% due increase to poor old pensioners that he has snaffled today and the 1.25% hike on everyone’s NI bill might perhaps, by the gifted, be seen as just the beginning of the realized strife that will need to be applied to us directly because of their succeeded narrow ways: Social Care is struggling because all of the carers have buzzed off a la Brexit.

  2. Boris caused it by being too stupid to separate Brexit from trade agreements, an example would be Norway not in EU. I bet he cheered when Covid came along as a total distraction, and it gave him plenty of time for the creation of imaginative excuses. We now have a situation where crops rot in the fields due to absence of EU labour. Forthcoming shortages will be leeks and brussels sprouts. That Steeples character may not even get a sniff of gin as the berries rot on the trees.
