It offers a perfect juxtaposition of something that is quintessentially British being undermined by Britishness. I thought.

Das Bus begeistert sein!

Bloke was speaking to his German wife in pub and the landlady took exception and banned him, as well as kicking out other drinkers who protested.

Former Tower of London Beefeater thrown out of pub 'for speaking German to his daughter' | Mail Online

Ding Ding!
Sadly his wife, Anni, died two years ago. It was as the headline alleges, his daughter.

Indeed.

Tactics often used by the Daily Mail, that is; Get the wounded side's version of events in first, and rely on those with a business to run not to comment.

Their version could of course be true, real-life Basil Fawltys do exist. But an alternative version might well be that a curmudgeonly old boy, a few hours into his drinking session, has a disagreement with the landlady, makes a disparaging but pointed aside in German about the landlady to his daughter. Landlady doesn't understand the words but knows full well she is being insulted/sent up and gives him and daughter the heave-ho.

Even the DM is being unusually cautious this time, using 'apparently', 'allegedly' and 'claim' in the first few lines of the article. Could it be that even they (and their in-house lawyers) are having now having doubts about the story but decided that such a good bit of xenophobic outrage was too good to pass up?

If the DM is being cautious and caveating stuff, does this mean I can only be allegedly outraged?

I speak German, my wife was born in the place those hallowed nurses were always comming from, yet she doesn't speak German but eats pommes frites MIT mayo, as if she was German.

Faux outrage me thinks!!

Did my attempt at saying "fire up the bus" make sense auf Deutch?

Too difficult to make a judgement when you only know half the story and even the validity of that remains open to question. From past experience, if the DM has got this completely wrong, maligned the landlady unjustifiably and helped ruin her business, we are unlikely to see it giving any embarrassing truth equal prominence.

Agree with Dunservin on this one. How many times has the Mail caused the bus to be deployed only to find that it's all a bit of a non story when the other party's side of the incident is revealed.

What's outraging me is that those twats at S&N call the landlord the 'official designated premises supervisor'. Says all you need to know about the place. And it serves Fosters, FFS!

If the story is true then I doubt she will be the 'official designated premises supervisor' for much longer.

She's not actually the 'official designated premises supervisor', the heady title of 'official designated premises supervisor' goes to her husband. Who is the 'official designated premises supervisor'.

So is there a difference in Law between this 'official designated premises supervisor' which sounds suspiciously like a term conjured-up by an insurance company, and the person licensed by the local authority to serve alcoholic beverages on the premises?

Just curious about the terminology; not remotely interested in the machinations of a rag.

if the landlords not on property there has to be a staff member that has been specificly told hes in charge as 'official designated premices supervisor'.............. its for any possible blame chain,

but this can be abused by people who have a pub but no licence (or lost the PL, say if you get busted for drunk driving), so they find a person with a licence not in a premices, and give him a bung to put his name on the door so the owner/lessee can continue trading.

so shes the odps........................... and who and where is the PL holder? haha.


******* landlady walt.
