Woman in a builders merchants

Staff at a well known South London, Builders Merchants  were left dumbfounded yesterday. A woman entered the branch and knew exactly what she needed to buy.

Aston's to become unaffordable to those on benefits

There was outrage and disbelief across the country as Aston Martin revealed the price of their cars would have to rise, following Brexit.

After a northerner slags off Borough Market the locals suggests he sticks to Wetherspoons as ‘he will feel more at home there’

Borough Market, a little pretentious? Surely not

Indignation spread across the artisan market community, when a crudely worded complaint was propagated on social media.

Tourist Trevor Manley, who can only be described as ‘northern’, felt that his visit to Borough Market was ‘poor value for money.’

Satire under attack as Wetherspoons proves it can’t take a joke

The delightful pub chain JD Wetherspoons has started legal action against a Twitter parody account. It wants Twitter to reveal who is behind the very funny account. 

Here is a link to The Independent’s report https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/tom-from-spoons-jd-wetherspoon-twitter-parody-abuse-identity-fake-pub-high-court-ruling-a8682136.html

At The Chatty Chimp we believe in the right to take the mickey out of the great and the good. It is why we exist. Taking the piss is a very British trait, our culture is littered with irreverent, profane and satirical swipes at the establishment. 

Using the law, because you’re rich, to shut up dissenting voices, maybe legal but does not strike us as being very moral. 

We are asking all of our readers to follow @Wetherspoon__UK on Twitter and if possible, offer them your support. 

Wetherspoons removed their twitter account some time ago, which is a bit of a shame.
