Anyone know why Weatherspoons pubs have pro-brexit beermats and articles in their pub magazine?

Apparently the founder isn't a fan of Europe. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/may/31/wetherspoons-brexit-beer-mats-eu-referendum-imf

Yes, I got that from the beer mat message about the IMF. It doesn't quite explain why he's against the whole EU though.

Yeah, it's one of the handful of 'big businesses' that's in favour of exiting. Just because the founder doesnae like the EU.

Yes. Never mind, I still like their food even if I disapprove of their politics.

Wetherspoons big cheese was on question time last weekend, so listening again might give you some answers to this.
