Morrissey sued for £250,000 over failed pub venture

This is a real shame, and although there's not a lot of information, perhaps reflects more of the true difficulties there are in the pub business. High profile figures like Neil Morrissey get a lot of publicity for their pub ventures, with an implication that the pub trade will work when you know what you're doing (the implication that the celebs do, magically, know what they are doing). Earlier this year reports of pubs owned by Anthony Worrall Thompson; Jean Cristophe Novelli; Gordon Ramsay and others, recently added to with news that Morrissey's newest venture went over budget, all got somehow separated from the general debate about the real business stresses faced by licensees across the pub industry.
