Every week it seems I read or hear that 25 pubs close every month. Or is it 12 every week? Or is it 3 every day? Are we about to run out of pubs? Will Weatherspoon's opening a new beer hall every 3.5 days take up the slack? 1st February 2012: BBC News 52 pubs per week 16th March 2012: BBC News 29 pubs per week I've found an article which seems to explain how the acurate figures are obtained: http://fullfact.org/factchecks/pub_closures_alcohol_business-3237 Mar-Apr '12 Wetherspoon News: p74 "16 pubs" in a month 1st May 2012: Express & Star 12 pubs per week 2nd May 2012: The Telegraph 16 pubs per week
