Further to a story broken this week by budding Newsbiscuit Reporter, Estima about the plans for dole cheque cashing and related services to be integrated with Pub Chain, D.J. Whetherspoon. It has this morning been announced by the Con-Dem Coalition's public services spending committee that with effect from 2011 all public library services will also be awarded to Whetherspoons.
John Smith, a spokesman for the pub chain said "It seems entirely rational to combine this service together with our existing public services. we already provide a safe environment for alcoholics to keep them away from the general public, we provide temporary shelter for the homeless and lets face it, the only people who either have the time or inclination to use public libraries are those unemployed who have nothing else to do with their time." "It makes absolute sense to kill two birds with one stone and provide our customers with a book reading service!"
