Given the pointless Plan B lockdown it is no great shock that JD Wetherspoon (JDW) will make a first half loss.

The great man does not hold back and opines:

Alreet Chloe Thompson ye bonnie lass – fancy a job at Fidelity? Belta! But while they talk the ESG talk do they really walk the G walk? Heroic Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon (JDW) has lashed out and his answer is NO!. The great man says:
