Just when you think the world couldn't get any madder...

CAMRA, the highly successful consumer organisation that has for decades promoted Real Ale has decided that it needs to be 'revitalised'.

The project group looking at this has suggested that CAMRA should no longer focus on Real Ale, but give support to all 'good' beer.

A change so radical is rather like the Richard III Society deciding that Henry VII was actually quite a decent chap, and that his hereditary claim to the throne had some substance.

What it means on the ground is that CAMRA (if the change is supported) will in future give credence to the overpriced, glorified fizzy keg that is laughingly called 'craft beer'.

I give up. I really do.
