Greetings from across the pond!
I am lucky enough to be in the UK for the Brexit vote. This is striking gold in political nerdom!
On my way to the UK I was planning on collecting Brexit ads. Sadly, I am seeing very few. In fact, the only one I saw was in a pub (surprise, surprise).
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term “Brexit,” there is a referendum vote on Thursday June 23 to determine if the United Kingdom should leave the European Union.
This is a non-partisan blog and not having UK citizenship I really have no strong feelings towards the outcome of the vote. HOWEVER, I LOVE POLITICAL ADVERTISING! Actually, I love advertising in general.
The ad I found was in a pub called “Robert the Bruce” in Scotland. It appears to be owned by a bigger corporation, called “Wetherspoon.”
Here is the ad
Just so everything is transparent, I am NOT being paid to write this post. But for what it is worth, while I was there, I ordered the Tika Masala. It was gluten free and delicious. The staff were able to get AG’s food in record time even though they were really busy because of a town-wide festival!
