Pub owner describes Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum as 'muppets'

A pub owner has described a group of locals as 'muppets' with 'too much time on their hands' after they successfully campaigned to protect his business from development. Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum nominated historic boozer, The Duke of Hamilton for a special community status, even though owner Steve Coxhall told them not to. He says it puts him at a massive disadvantage and is now planning to take legal action.
