As England continues to embrace diversity and flood itself with Third World “vibrancy,” a record number of local pubs have gone out of business, causing many to lament the loss of this integral part of their traditional culture:
Across the UK, roughly 854 pubs closed in 2018, down from 980 in 2017. 40,683 pubs remain in business in England, with 2,901 across Wales and 3,612 in Scotland, according to the figures.
UK pubs are closing down at an alarming rate of one every 12 hours, figures from the Campaign for Real Ale revealed.
378 pubs had shut down across England, Wales, and Scotland between July and December 2018, or roughly 14 shutdowns a week, a CAMRA press release published on Monday said.

CAMRA national chairman Jackie Parker told Sputnik via a press statement that pubs were “a very important part of our national culture and are valuable community assets which help to combat loneliness and social isolation,” and that it was “great we have seen a drop in the number of pubs closing and shows that our campaign to get planning protection for pubs was worth it”.
Ms. Parker added: “Protecting pubs in the English planning system was a necessity and a welcome move from the Government. However, it’s taken nearly two years for the trickle-down effects of the planning changes to show. Our politicians should back the asks of the Save Our Pubs Campaign in full, and show they are squarely behind pubs.”
Ms. Parker added that Brexit would give the government the freedom to reduce Beer Duty in pubs, “levelling the playing field between the price of beer sold in social, community settings and cheap supermarket alcohol consumed at home.”
“We believe this is one of three key measures the Government needs to take urgently to halt the tide of pub closures. We want a full reviews both of the business rates system to fix the unfair amount pubs pay, and the currently ineffective legislation designed to enable pub tenants to get a fair deal from their big-business property owners — both moves the Government has promised but is yet to carry out.”
Local planning protection for pubs have helped to stave off pub closures, CAMRA stated, with pub closures falling from 18 closures a week in 2018. Regions most deeply affected by closures were Yorkshire and the Humber, as well as the Southeast, which suffered one shutdown per 100 pubs last year. The news comes after UK mainstay London Pride was sold to Japanese beermaker Asahi for £250m in a bid to save the Chiswick-based Griffen Brewery, the company’s base of operations since 1654.
This epidemic of pub closings will be attributed to every cause except the real one, and that’s because if you even hint at the idea that pubs are closing because of the massive influx of non-Whites into the U.K., you’ll be receiving a visit from the local police, and very possibly end up with a heavy fine or even jail. Racially diverse communities have low levels of trust and participation. And racially diverse community pubs are few and far between for that reason. The math on this is very simple.
Liberals used to claim that the government of Margaret Thatcher intentionally kept the beer prices low to encourage drinking so that no one would complain about the horrible economy — keep the poor people drunk so they won’t worry about not having any jobs. But that misses a bigger point — the traditional pub culture is far more about community than it is about just the drinking involved. And by insisting on a multicultural society, traditional British culture must move aside and agree to its own demise.
