This week's Morning Advertiser features not only a four-page advertorial for the Save Our Pubs & Clubs campaign. There's also a three-and-a-half page editorial feature, much of it devoted to an interview I gave the magazine a month or so ago.
The MA feature includes comments from John Madden, executive officer, Guild of Master Victuallers ("If this Government wants to help our industry, allowing smoking rooms is a way to do it"); Martin Caffrey, operations director, Federation of Licensed Victuallers Associations ("We will look at anything that will help our members' trade and we would certainly actively campaign for smoking rooms"), and Mark Hastings, director of communications, British Beer and Pub Association ("We do not want to see a return to smoking in pubs. It would be a backward and unwelcome step.").
Worth reading, if I say so myself, if only for the line, "Clarke (sic) has the air of a man who's trudged a lonely road over the past three years". And I thought I was rather upbeat!!
