Many papers seemed able to agree today on a story about rising beer prices. Here's a selection:
"The price of a pint of beer could be cranked up by a staggering 30p next year because of Brexit, leading pub operators have warned."
"Pub companies in Britain have warned the government that they will be forced to raise the price of a pint if they are not protected from a Brexit inflation in the new year."
The Daily Star
"First Marmite, then fish fingers – now Brexit is causing our beer to go up in price. The Brexit curse strikes again as pub firms warn that a pint could cost an extra 30p..."
"Pub companies have warned the government that the price of a pint could rise by up to 30p if they are not protected from a "triple whammy" of pressures in the new year. A "perfect storm" of Brexit- related inflation, soaring business rates and the introduction of the national living wage will add an estimated 4% to overheads."
But not all papers…
"Some of Britain’s largest pub firms have told the government they could be forced to up pint prices due to rising inflation, soaring business rates and the introduction of the living wage."
The Daily Express
In fact, the blindly pro-Brexit Express managed to report the story without even mentioning the role of Brexit as mentioned in all other reports.
