Reading East MP, Rob Wilson Criticised for Claiming Credit

As a keen real ale drinker I have been following the story to save the Reading canal side pub ‘The Jolly Angler’ closely. A deal has been struck with the new owners and West Berkshire brewery.

However it appears Reading East Conservative MP, Rob Wilson is facing criticism after he issued a press release prematurely to claim credit for saving the pub.

Please see the Reading List report here


  1. It looks like Wilson claimed there was a deal when it was still being hammered out, according to the brewery in negotiations. Not the first time he's got himself into hot water!

  2. Oh dear, Wilsons not doing too well

  3. I like real ale. Is (was) the Jolly Angler the Fullers pub or the other one where the 18 year old chavs and their kids go. I may be confuddled...
