Anti-Royal Wedding Party

I've just heard about that the Fulford Arms in Fulford Road, York, will be holding an Anti-Royal Wedding party on 29th April to offer respite for republicans or those looking for a break from all the fuss.  There will even be a charity 'swear box' for anyone caught discussing the big event in London.

Earlier this month, the licensee, Steve Bradley, barred the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, from the Fulford Arms because of the increase in beer tax in the budget, saying, “The increase in duty is directly hitting our profits and we have had enough.  We have only been here a month and we have had to put up our prices already. We have no choice but to make the customer pay for what the Government has enforced.”

Obviously a licensee who likes going against the grain - nothing wrong with that - plus it's a real ale pub too.
