Visitors to Wetherspoon pubs across the country could soon be drinking their pints off Brexit beer mats.

The pub company has printed 200,000 beer mats covered in arguments for the UK to leave the European Union.

The message under your bottle draws attention to governance issues with senior staff at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and asks why UK voters should trust the views of its managing director, Christine Lagarde, who has voiced her support for the Remain group.

The mats have messages on both sides and are signed by JD Wetherspoon founder and chairman Tim Martin, a vocal supporter of Brexit.

Mm Lagarde is not an economist, she is a lawyer. It is not clear to me why she is a fit and proper person to head the IMF, pronounce on our economy and be reported so uncritically by the BBC. She is also under investigation for corruption as were her two predecessors.
