Meanwhile in local news...
A Hornchurch cafe has been accused of being racist by customers because of tiny toothpick Union Jack flags that are served with every plate of food.

The owner of Station 164, in Station Road said that since the World Cup the number of problems has risen, and that 3-4 people every week have complained about the one-inch flags that are put in toast, and sandwiches.

The fact that they are going out of business as they are completely insolvent has nothing to do with it ... but 4 customers a week complaining about a flag will put them out of business !

Rich, hard, white.

It's what being British is all about.

"Richard White • a day ago
Anyone who finds this racist should be deported from the UK, regardless of creed or colour. They can have a good, long think about what it means to be British and all the benefits that entails."

That food looks like it's been knob-wiped already, so I doubt it has any more improvement left in it.

Couple of miserable looking women?

How dare you, they are two of Hornchurch's finest immediately post make over.

So, the cafe owner thought, "I know a good way to drum up business. We'll get a story in the paper showing two miserable looking women handling some badly cooked food while moaning about their customers and boasting about ignoring their complaints. What could possibly go wrong?"

'what that article needs is one or two more pics of those two women holding the plate'.

Haha! I was thinking that too. I'd LOVE to be a photographer for a local paper.

'Okay sweethearts, both of you hold the plate with one hand and look sad and disappointed. Good, now just you my love holding it and try to picture how you think this country is going to the dogs with all them blacks and muslims complaining you don't do a Taliban breakfast. No, a bit more sad please but only with your eyes'.

'Now a picture of the plate of food with the tomatoes for eyes and the sausage turned downwards so it looks like it's frowning.'

'Now crouch down with a sad face and point at the pothole'.

My dream job!

Lads, be careful, I don't think you are allowed to call it a full "English" anymore.

Lato precisely. Or if its causing that many complaints why do it? Seems a bit daft to provoke your customers so that you can then.complain about them.complaining about you. I find that every bit as odd as going to a cafe that is pissing you off.

Weird how the union jack has become so contentious again. Weren't that long ago that it was a design icon on everything from pillows cases to coffee cannisters. Perception is a strange beast.

Re: Meanwhile in local news...
If that's the cafe between the station & the Turkish barbers (opposite the knocking shop), they've just changed owners so I expect this is just gagging for some free publicity.

The gaff a bit further down the road, past the Railway Hotel is far better.

“We have some tourists that love it. They take the flags home with them as a momento.”

Tourists in Hornchurch? Ha Ha!

Oh ffs......you couldn't make it up!

Only in this country does something like this become an issue. Can you imagine what the Yanks would say if someone in the US was offended by a stars and stripes flag planted in their burger?

If you dont like the way the food is presented dont eat there...simple!
