Talk about putting the boo
Greg Mulholland, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Save the Pub Group (yeah, that exists), introduced a motion in the British Parliament
that denounces the Olympic Committee for choosing Heineken, a Dutch import, as the official beer of the London Games instead of one brewed in the U.K.
On his website, Mulholland declares
“Beer is the U.K.'s national drink, and the country has a strong and ancient tradition of brewing. By choosing a mass-produced, bland foreign lager, the committee has ignored all the wonderful, traditional beers that the UK has to offer and instead gone for the company with the biggest.”
The politician went on to say that the approaching Summer Games should be used to highlight “the best of British.”
Now that’s a brewing controversy.
