Annoyingly political pub chain Wetherspoons and its annoyingly political owner Tim Martin have chose to Brexit the drinks menu ahead of the UK's departure from the European Union, although the changes are all to do with trade rules and cheaper imports, not randomly hating foreign people and the stuff they make, promises Tim.

French champagne and German beers will be substituted for alternatives from the United Kingdom and other countries outside the bloc.

Kopparberg has confirmed that it will be producing its cider in the United Kingdom post-Brexit.

Wetherspoon said its new wheat beers brewed in the United Kingdom will include Blue Moon Belgian White, Thornbridge Versa Weisse Beer and SA Brains Atlantic White.

Champagne will also be replaced by Denbies Sparkling Whitedowns Brut and Whitedowns Rose Brut - both made in the UK.

Austrlian Hardys Sparkling Pinot Chardonnay will also appear on the menu.

'This move helps us to broaden our horizons so that we create an improved offer for the two million customers who visit our pubs each week.

Prime Minister Theresa May has promised Britain will quit the group which sets universal import duties when it leaves the EU.

They warned "the amount of new infrastructure required for the Morocco 2026 bid to become reality can not be overstated". The "United Bid" calls for the U.S.to host 60 matches, including all games from the quarter-finals through to the final.

And Tim was scathing of the European Union, saying post-Brexit booze prices would be cheaper.

He said that he intends to find a replacement for prosecco from the United Kingdom or new world countries which include Argentina, Australia, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa and the US.

'However, we are starting to make the transition to non-EU trade now'.

Mr Martin said Wetherspoon sells two million bottles of sparkling wine each year, most of which is prosecco.

Wetherspoon's will continue to serve Kopparberg cider from Sweden.

Tim insisted British and non-EU products would be cheaper for punters.

Outlining his four-point plan for a successful break with Brussels, Mr Martin said last month: 'To get a good deal, you need options. He said each of the 650 parliamentary constituencies would receive around £60million.

Martin is a staunch Brexit supporter and has been vocal in his support of Britain's departure from the EU.
