A local student has given two fingers to “the man” by paying over the odds for a drink.
Simon Williams, 19, is studying philosophy and politics at the University of Reading and has a beard because of course he fucking does.
Sipping from a drink that cost the equivalent of four tins of Carlsberg, Williams said, “ahh, that’s the sweet taste of screwing with capitalism.

“You can really taste the hops. I don’t actually know what hops are, but the pleasure of consuming them costs six quid which means they must be wonderful.

Simon’s dad said, “No, of course I’m not proud of him.
“What happened to downing pints of Foster’s at £1.95 a pop until you throw up into a skip? That’s proper drinking.”
