As pubs are quickly closing with estimated figures of at least twenty-eight a week, the UKIP and the Justice for Licensees are petitioning for an investigation into what exactly is going. With cash strapped pubs already hit hard by fruit machine taxes, the investigation would include everything from discounts to business practices for the pubs.

Great British Pub

Pubs have been the backbone for communities and many feel that should the entire industry fail that many other industries would topple as well. Nigel Farage, UKIP leader, believes that the Great British Pub is worth saving and members of the UK Independence Party are staunch supporters. Bet365 Review.


There are two active petitions that may make a difference in the fate of pubs. Inez Ward of the JFL has a petition open in regards to the investigation into industry practice by the Royal Independent Commission.

The Publican’s Morning Advertiser is calling for the Government to reduce VAT to 5% for the hospitality sector in a petition opened by Ewan Turney.
