With sixty employees at Lancashire brewery Thwaites facing the axe as the firm looks to relocate, workers appear to have hit back – by altering the neon ‘THWAITES’ sign on the town centre building to read ‘TWATS’.

The sign is mounted on a giant tower and is visible to hundreds of thousands of people across Blackburn and much of East Lancashire. Plus the event has gone viral, of course.

Lesson of the day: piss your workforce off at your peril. Twats. Odds on the Thwaites brand being known as Twats for the next 50 years? Better than even.

    Nice one.


  2. Yep, not a smart move by the company, that’s for sure. Made me laugh, though.

    That reminds me of my college days. Any professor who had an easily “adjustable” surname needed to be especially fine in order to avoid student mockery. Mr. Bastress was NOT a stellar example of the teaching profession. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination.
