Default Pub Owners ban British soldiers.

No, not in Andalucia. Not in Basra. Not even in a rowdy Aldershot boozer.
In a Midlands city centre

The Globe Pub in Leicester has recently enforced a new scheme which seeks to ban all British military personnel from entering their premises in fear of upsetting local non British citizens.
I'm absolutely staggered by this. I actually know this pub - it's in a shopping zone in central Leicester, and nowhere near any Asian areas (which have an Hindu element as well as Muslim).

Must be a wind-up?

If they really meant what they said they would ban the sale of alcohol as well!

It's a spoof... have a look at some of the other stories, it's fake... as has been pointed out by people who know the pub the two in the picture aren't even the landlord and lady and they aren't even sat in the actual pub....

Yep - My fault, I saw it on Facebook. It WAS a wind-up.
Just checked on Twitter and the pub has said this:

the story regarding banning ex-military from the globe is absolute rubbish, we are currently seeking legal advice. please share

This is not true it is a very cruel and stupid spoof-the people pictured are not even the landlords of this pub-and are from another pub-Disgusting attempt at humour I'm afraid.

Good bit of publicity for the pub though?

Ha, you made me laugh JennieUk. Yet again you've made a false accusation that has made yourself look stupid. Did you not even see "this must be a wind-up" in the 1st post?
But please continue with the personal attacks. You obviously have little else to offer the board.

To be fair to Stevie it did suddenly explode onto the internet and it did look like a breaking story and a lot of people took it as real... there was almost no information out there saying anything different. Of course the story about a takeaway processing the body of a missing teenager into kebab meat sort of let the cat out of the bag a bit....

Ha,ha, sort of.

Unfortunately he is not always renowned for quoting from the most reputable source.

Heh. There are any number of negative stories breaking out at any time. For both Spain and the UK. It's not me (the vast majority of the time) posting negative stories, in fact I get flack for doing the opposite most of the time.
As for this story I found it of interest - firstly because I couldn't believe it (and my instincts were right) and secondly because I know that pub, having once lived in Leicester. If it had turned out to be true, I would have have been the most shocked person here.
I currently live in a part of London predominantly settled by people from the Middle East, many are neighbours, and to date I've no problems with any of them. Best not to say who has though, I'll be accused of being racist..
