    Wetherspoon warns again on costs as sales rise 3.5 percent

    Chairman Tim Martin, a well-known supporter of Britain's planned departure from the European Union, also said he was sure the country should leave the EU customs union post-Brexit in aid of reducing taxes on non-EU food and drink imports. Like other operators in the British pub sector, Wetherspoon has been hit by increased costs, mainly due to wage inflation, rising property costs and unfavourable currency exchange rates. Wetherspoon's prices undercut many of its peers and it has leveraged technology with a mobile application that allows customers to order drinks from their table rather than having to go to the bar to help draw customers at a time when non-essential spending by Britons has been squeezed.

    Brexit-Loving Pub Landlord Is Chucking Out the Internet

    Its boss, Tim Martin, says the move is about setting an example to people addicted to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook who "struggle" to kick the habit. While there's merit to the idea of corporations pruning their online presence, Martin isn't an obvious standard-bearer for civil discourse or careful communication. He's unlikely to get many corporate followers.

The move comes after estimates that 8.5 billion straws are used in Britain every year – or more than 23 million a day – which is contributing to the death of marine animals, according to the Marine Conservation Society. The fast-food giant joins a list of nightclubs and restaurant venues - including Pizza Express, pub chain Wetherspoons, and supermarket Waitrose - which have pledged to dump plastic straws for bio-degradable alternatives.
