Councillors find a new excuse for going on a bender at the public's expense

As if living in West London was not bad enough, it turns out that pubs and bars in the area are selling short measures.

While ensuring that bars comply with Section 28 of the Weights and Measures Act 1985 is a laudable aim, am I being overly cynical in wondering why councillors decided that now was a great time to go on an epic pub crawl and make "more than 100 test purchases"?

If anyone at Croydon Council wants to replicate the 'research' in these parts, I am willing to volunteer my services in return for the drinks money. My e-mail is thethreeforks@gmail.com

They have slowly reduced the number of crisps in a packet as well. Smarties also.I have a distinct feeling the Croydonian posts are becoming shorter.


There has been no reduction to the price of entry ..

Did you know that the mayor of westminster rides around in a stretch rolls?
Cunt should take a taxi.
I recall politicians calling for an end to "happy hour" and drinks industry figures solemnly agreeing.
wouldnt have anything to do with being able to jack up your prices would it lads?
