The Publican's Morning Advertiser asked licensees to what degree has the general election been a topic of discussion in their establishments.

The Victoria Inn, Salcombe, Devon

Not much — we’re into sailing down here so we get a lot of visiting yachtsman who talk about the water, weather and tides. Pricing is also a topic of chat as our prices have gone up.

Phil Jones

Britannia Inn, Queniborough, Leicestershire

It’s there but they find the rugby and football more interesting. It’s going to heat up in the coming weeks. People are concerned about what’s going to happen.

Karen Errington

Rat Inn, Anick, Northumberland

Very little. People are fed up with politicians and realise it doesn’t make a difference who gets into power because all the parties are closer together now. I think there are a lot of people who don’t bother voting.

Anthony Harvey

The Wheatsheaf Inn, No Mans Heath, Warwickshire

It has been a hot topic for a few weeks. We have a good cross section across the political spectrum. Customers talk about who is going to form a coalition; nobody is expecting an overall winner.
