Actor Eddie Marsan said he preferred dinner parties to pubs and class war erupted
What kind of people attack the hugely talented, clever, gentle, socially concerned @eddiemarsan for being a class traitor because he admits to prefer eating with friends at home instead of drinking with strangers in pubs? Stop this nonsense.

-Eddie Marsan not a fan of Brexit.
-Attracts ire of brexists/Corbynistas
-Some twat makes quip that he holds dinner parties. Because that’s a bad thing now.
-Eddie explains that he likes dinner parties and the personal reasons he’s not a fan of pubs.

Yesterday on Twitter@eddiemarsan "pubs aren't necessarily that great"
The cult: "OH MY GOD EDDIE MARSAN IS A CLASS TRAITOR WHO THINKS EVERYONE SHOULD BEAT THEIR WIVES"
EM: "No I don't"
Cult: "LOOK HOW HE LIES, THE APOSTATE! BURN HIM"

Is this a new rule? If anyone discusses their personal experiences from their community, from any time in history, this is ‘tarring’ everyone of the gender, class or race they discuss in a critical manner?

Quick update on British politics. The right are having a row about Brexit. The left are having a row about pubs, dinner parties, class war, domestic violence, marches AND Brexit. And it’s only Monday morning. Have a great day!

Look I know we’ve been gearing up for a culture war for a few years here in the UK but if it is going to be ‘pubs v dinner parties’ then I’m out.

To conclude …
Twitter 2010: Hey, we all seem to get on really well. We should meet up. It’ll be fun.
Twitter 2018: *suspiciously* Dinner party or pub?

The man himself had a serious regret.
I’m sorry that as a child I didn’t visit every pub in the country before I developed a preference to meet friends in restaurants or in our homes. https://t.co/Z3GskD1KQ2

Finally, columnist Sarah Ditum , amongst others, had simply had enough.
“SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT PUBS VS DINNER PARTIES I SWEAR TO GOD I WOULD RATHER DRINK NO-BRAND VODKA AND EAT CREAM CRACKERS IN A BUS STOP THAN LISTEN TO TWITTER DOES CLASS ANALYSIS”
