Idiot man. I worked in a cafe once and a child was sick on the (new) carpet. Should we have banned all children?
In fact, we were so busy that I don't think anybody else even noticed.

They've got form ,they also don't allow breastfeeding mothers

If they carry on banning like this they will have no customers left...shame...

Respectable business-owning scum right there.

Both the owners were in agreement about the banning.

As they were in the breastfeeding shenanigans.

The comment "Idiot Man" wasn't needed.

Ok, sorry, should have been idiot man and woman.

organicgardener Fri 12-Aug-11 14:49:44

Agreed honey wink

I hope the locals boycott the place.

Chains often get a bad press but they can often be better at accessibility issues than some independent places because they've got a head office doing the thinking of these things for them.

FWIW, guide dogs in training are often out and about near where I live and you often see them in Starbucks with their trainers.

Surely if the owners are breaking equality laws they could simply be prosecuted - on at least two counts, it seems.

Maybe the cafe should put up a sign like from the 1950s 'No dogs, no Irish', instead it would be 'No guide dogs, no breastfeeding' and a few other pieces of lunacy.

At times like this Britain seems a very primitive place to be - riots and destruction on the one hand and neurotic, ignorant discrimination on the other.
