The chairman and founder of a major British pub chain attacked opponents of Brexit, misspelled Warren Buffett's name three times, and complained about rules for UK companies in his official commentary on the £1.4 billion market-cap company's half-year earnings.
JD Wetherspoon's Tim Martin, a vocal Brexit supporter, wasted no time getting his views across. "The vexed debate about Brexit has continued since the referendum, nearly three years ago," he wrote in a release on Friday.
"Although the public voted to leave, the majority of 'the establishment,' including most MPs, most universities, the Bank of England, the [Confederation of British Industry] and media organizations such as The Times, the Financial Times and The Economist favored 'Remain.'"
