THE Guardian has launched an investigation into why people choose to have breakfast at Wetherspoon’s.
The paper believes it has identified a ‘fascinating and disturbing socio-economic trend’ involving millions of ordinary people paying £2.99 for bacon and eggs.
The investigation explores the troubling reasons why consumers do not eat somewhere else, or pay more than they need to for a plate of food.
Tom Logan, a Wetherspoon’s customer in Peterborough, said: “A reporter sat down next to me, without my permission, and asked me why I felt forced to do what I was doing.
“I told him it was half past eight in the morning and that I’m eating. And then I told him to fuck off.”
Jane Thompson, from Stevenage, added: “I told the reporter that it’s £2.99 and it’s on my way to work. He said that was absolutely fascinating and disturbing.
“And then I told him to fuck off.”
