Cafe owners in London harassed to decorate the food with English flag
Wednesday 15 August 2018
A small family-run cafe in London, called Station 164, decorated the food they delivered to their customers with a small British flag. Now Carol Brown and daughter Candy Merrett probably shut the cafe after being exposed to a campaign on social media, claiming the flags show that the owners are racists, writes Daily Mail.
They couldn’t take it anymore of vilification. On Facebook, the owner writes that she is a patriotic and proud British, without prejudice. “Every customer knows we’re sending out the food decorated with a flag,” she writes, believing it should not offend anyone, but that it is a symbol of “Great British Pride.”
“We are a small London cafe, we are British, English and Londoners. We do not want to be ashamed to place small flags in our food. We do not stop. We are patriotic, not ‘pathetic’ as someone called us last week. We’re celebrating our country. “
Later she decided to close the cafe. Candy says that some people have gone into the cafe just to throw the flags on the floor.
A commentator on TripAdvisor believes that people who do not tolerate an English flag that adorn the food and think it is racist should concentrate on eating in an eatery in East London, and “let those of us who love it (the flag) in peace. I want to eat here again and again and again ». Then the question becomes whether it becomes possible. Because even though the owners’ last word is that they want to close the cafe, it is legitimate to change their minds.
