Twenty million Britons have stopped going to the pub




A recent survey of 2,427 adults has revealed that twenty million Britons have stopped going to the pub.


They are also changing to cheaper supermarkets, taking a packed lunch to work and cancelling holidays and charity donations.


Price comparison website uSwitch.com spokesperson Anne Robinson who conducted the study said “The global crisis has had an impact on interest rates with fewer good mortage offers on the market than ever before.


'Consumers are also finding it harder to get their next credit or loan as providers lend with extreme caution.


'Consumers must continue to fight back if they are to keep their head above water at what is still a volatile time.'


The Brits not going to the pub? Impossible, I don’t believe it!
