Looking at the proposals for beer duty, Sonja hits out at the lack of relief for local pubs:
“The Conservatives are adding 5p to the price of a pint which will put another nail in the coffin for the pub industry.”
“Pubs are the centre of Bradford’s villages and towns, acting like mini-parliaments where people can go to relax, meet their mates, and debate issues of the day in a safe environment.”
“Four pubs close everyday, which is killing local communities and destroying jobs – they need help! UKIP have run a save the pub campaign in Bradford for many years.”
Sonja will be joined by UKIP party leader Nigel Farage MEP on a pub crawl Sunday night to talk to publicans and customers across Bradford West about the future of their industry and local issues.
