Barring Darling.

"AN internet campaign to get Alistair Darling banned from every pub in the UK has been inspired by a bar in the Capital. Last week, the News revealed that Utopia on Leith Walk had put up a poster barring the Chancellor after his 4p per pint tax increase in the Budget. The report prompted an Edinburgh-based blog, Musings of a Reactionary Snob, to call for the ban to be made nationwide. The campaign has 110 supporters on its Facebook site, and pubs in Bolton, Lewes and Oxfordshire have followed Utopia ..."

Mr Smith loves it, but he suspects that Mr Darling doesn't spend a lot of his time hanging about pubs, so being barred from them probably won't matter.
