BREAKING NEWS: Chief Exec. swerves PUNCH in pursuit of a pasty!

PREFERS A PIE TO A PUNCH!
Punch Taverns have revealed that their Chief Executive, Roger Whiteside is moving on to pastures new, from next month. Or should that be pasties new!

Roger has decided that flogging pies, in preference to pints, seems to be a better option and career move.

 And perhaps, he's realised, that turning around this Pubco, was more difficult than he first anticipated

Greggs, the pie and pasty maker, is the next port of call for Captain Roger. Maybe he thought the 'good' ship Punch had sprung a leak and had begun to list, in the choppy and turbulent,  economic seas?

It's possibly a tad unfair to say that Rodge had jumped ship. Let's face it, many would say he had taken over a 'poisoned chalice'.

PASTY WILL BE 2 MINS IN THE MICROWAVE GUV!
Anyway, he is obviously up for a new challenge, and possibly wants to introduce a 'pie tie' at Greggs, in preference to the 'pub tie' at Punch! 

Hey, that could be one, new, slick operation.

Aye, Roger Whiteside, current captain at Punch Taverns, will disembark the (sinking) ship, as of the 4th February. We wish him well, navigating his fresh pie and pasty venture.  


Hoist the new captains flag, at Greggs the Bakers, for their next gaffer. Or should that be raise the flag at the good ship 'Jolly Roger'?
