Pub bans grandfather's trilby hat|
Oh, he's a journalist. Fair enough then, because they never get drunk and cause trouble do they?
"individuality must retain some significance even in this nanny state in which we live"
What's the nanny state got to do with it? It's a pub. Greene King aren't the government.
"individuality must retain some significance ..."
& what a bizarre way of saying what he wanted to say. Still: Journalist spouts nonsense shock!
You're right. We'll have to wait for Charles III before we get a Green King.
Wouldn’t the correct response from the BBC have been something like ‘We don’t care about you and your bloody hat - if you want to drink in that pub, take your hat off, if you don’t, don’t. Now clear off and leave us alone’?

A hat? Indoors? What's happened to etiquette these days?
"But on the other hand I think pubs and breweries should ask themselves who is under the hat - individuality must retain some significance even in this nanny state in which we live"

Just heard Mark Radcliffe talking about this story on Radio 2.
D'you think he's stalking your journal?
