Beer from Burkina Faso. It's nice, just don't look too closely at the lumps in it.
No lie is too far fetched for them is it?
Bottled Nigerian Guiness tastes nothing like the real black stuff

The UK Duty rate is about 95p per litre for both UK brewed and imported (there are some different rates depending on size of brewery and strength etc)
So Tim will have to get the UK government to reduce Duty rate to get his profits up. Maybe his mate and our future president Lord Garage will help him out.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.
Tim Martin is a serial liar like Johnson. Also most beer in the UK is brewed in the UK as there are huge multi nationals like AB Inbev based here that brew "foreign" beers locally. This is common practice due to the weight and transport issues of shipping beer (hence Nigerian Guinness). I doubt that removal of import restrictions on beer would have any fundamental difference in it's retail price.
If anything it's more likely that the UK will impose restrictions on imports in a desperate attempt to promote UK business as well as providing a small amount of leverage in the future trade talks with potential partners. If we go the "full Minford" and remove all import controls why would anyone want to do a trade deal with us? Whatever shit it is they want to sell us they will be able to do so. It's already cheaper to buy stuff direct from China on eBay than buy in a shop or from a UK based website.
As everyone understands in order to buy stuff you must earn money to pay for it. So to pay for imports you need to have exports or foreign income from overseas investments. The UK financial sector is a revenue generator in respect of foreign currency. If we lose that then the pound will go profoundly down the shitter, Zimbabwe style. Taking London out the EU looks as if a significant amount of activity will move out to reflect the need to be in the EU for Euro transactions. Perhaps not the fabled "cliff edge" but the scree slope analogy I have posted up many times before. If the pound goes down then imported beer will be more expensive not cheaper. Martin is lying.
Wouldn't it kind-of make sense to choose a conservative (but not rabidly pro-brexit) MP to head-up a post vote-of-confidence government? That way the conservative MPs wouldn't be voting to bring down their own party and everybody else would just be voting for a short continuation of the party which actually won the last election but with a guarantee of at least asking for an extension.
Too easy, I suppose.
