Eye on Moseley has now been working on the cutting edge of Moseley journalism for two years, trying to bring you generally accurate information almost after it happens. So, as a special treat, we have decided to bring you exactly the same story that we ran in our first issue.
The controversy surrounding the Wetherspoons pub has generally bored the tits off Moseley residents for two years, but the end might at last be in sight. Local magistrates recently granted the dull pub chain a license to open a pub in Moseley and that’s exactly what they are going to do. Sources close to the law told us that this hastily taken decision had nothing to do with the normal considerations in granting a license, but was purely designed to piss off the Moseley Society and hopefully stop their plaintive whinging.
We spoke to the local Wetherspoons “Don” who told us, “We’re glad you all saw sense in the end it would have been a shame to have start breaking peoples legs. It’s going to be a total bonus to the area and will hopefully provide a place for the more mature customers to get into pissed up fights.”
The decision is thought to have thrown the Moseley Society into turmoil. The Wetherspoons fight had been their sole focus since the last century and they now regard themselves much like a discarded trainer on top of a bus shelter. We understand they now intend to re-group and use their uniformed lap dogs to persecute the homeless. An anonymous insider told us yesterday “What they’ve got to learn is that we’re the law in Moseley and if you haven’t got a house then you better watch out.”
It’s good to see that nothing ever seems to change round here.
