Scottish and Newcastle: Its a tennent of faith

Hear hear for plucky British company S&N! True they don't make beer in Scotland or Newcastle anymore but who wants the Danish with their better brewing practises and less experience with monopoly beer franchises to ruin our good old Scottish pint. Admittedly I'm more of a Hoegarden man myself (well normally a G&T or a decent Chenin Blanc) but happy to buy the next man a pint of McKewans as much as I'd by anyone a drink if they asked for it.

Seems Carlsberg were wanting to buy S&N. I say no! We need several different brands of fizzy not very alcoholic lager. Let Idyacy offer a solution. Change the name to "&: (The brewery formerly knows as Scottish and Newcastle)", buy the sponsorhip of T in the Park and rename it "& in the Park", buy all that electric white lightening zapper cider and rebrand it as a cool Scottish Cider which you drink from a bottle over ice with a Bucky chaser and return S&N to the hearts of Scotland.

Just think what will happen if they go. We'd have a foreign company ruining our pubs instead of a good British one with a head office in Scotland!

P.S. While we are at it we should also start a campaign to prevent the EU from banning Lorne sausage.
