Voters torn as referendum debate pits Stephen Hawking against Wetherspoons

author avatar by 8 years ago

Voters in the EU referendum have been left torn this morning after weighing up the arguments of Professor Stephen Hawking against a chain of pubs that does a pie and a pint for a fiver.

As Wetherspoons announced it had printed 200,000 pro-Brexit beer mats just a day after Hawking said Brexit would be a ‘disaster’ for the country, many voters have said they just don’t know which of them to believe.

Political analyst Denise Matthews told us, “We’ve reached that point in the campaign where each side is rolling out their intellectual heavyweights – it’s getting serious.”

“We’re talking about trusting either; one of the greatest minds of the last hundred years, a man so intelligent he has been able to unravel many of the mysteries of the universe – or a guy who targets alcoholics in denial who ‘just happen to like a beer with their breakfast’.

With these two major new voices now joining the EU referendum debate, many voters have said they actually feel more confused than ever before.

Voter Simon Williams told us, “I just don’t know which of them is right?

“I get that Stephen Hawking is quite clever, but he does have American accent, so can we trust a foreigner on this?

“Whereas Wetherspoons do Happy Hour Jägerbombs, but they also tend to smell quite strongly of vomit.

“I think I’ll just wait and see what my horoscope says on the day.”
