When it comes to representation around the pub industry table I vote for Chris and Sylvia Roberts and Colin Matlock, a triumverate of balanced thinking and objectivity.
The following emails I've received bring warmth to my heart. These use very mild language compared to others sent to Fair Pint members by the trio:

Oh Doddsy. looks like you're doing way too much nose candy these days, your paranoia is only exceeded by your failure. So c'mon Mark, just between you and me. What HAVE you been spending all those donations on? We know it isn't Inez because me and Sylvia put a stop to that , I guess you being caught red handed with your fingers in the till must have been a tadÂ embarrassing for you. Anyway, we're glad that you enjoy the Publican forum, just as much as we enjoy exposing you daily for the crooked, lying little creep you are.

Oh you'll need to do MUCH better than that Doddsy!
Maybe you should change your meds because you're clearly losing whatever you think you have.

Well Dodds, good to see that a significant of people are now recognising you for the dishonest lying piece of trash you actually are.
Spin away old chap, you're phucked and you know it.
