Sign at Regional Wines in Draperstown

Have a look at the above sign, hung up on an off-license in Draperstown in Northern Ireland. You know what’s coming, don’t you?

The owners of a Draperstown off-licence which demanded ID from foreign nationals have pledged not to discriminate over race or nationality. Regional Wines in the County Londonderry village gave a voluntary undertaking after being contacted by the Equality Commission. The Irish News reported a sign in the window of the shop said: “Due to theft, foreign nationals must produce ID.”

The Kommisars in the Equalities Commission have had a word, the sign is now down, and foreign nationals can continue stealing to their hearts content  carry on doing their normal business without fear of opprobrium. Thank goodness we have quangos like the Equalities Commission to keep society well balanced.

  1. “Have a look at the above sign, hung up on an off-license in Draperstown in Northern Ireland.”

    Look, whatever about the others, since the GFA no Irish person should discriminate against British visitors.

  2. I wonder what the ATW response would have been if instead of reading foreign nationals it had said Jews?

    Wish I’d thought of that one Noel 😉

  3. Paul,
    Jewish people are not known for being overfond of alcohol. That’s probably why Noel -who is not above throwing the occasional barbed jibe- thought we Brits were more likely to get a laugh..

    Now if it had been an off licence gefilte fish outlet, you might have raised a chuckle my boy…..

  4. Won’t that effect the vast international tourist industry that Draperstown (population approx. 1600).

  5. Paul McMahon –

    I wonder what the ATW response would have been if instead of reading foreign nationals it had said Jews?

    ATW doesn’t have an editorial line, byt by response would have been: “Their property, their rules, anyone who doesn’t like it can take their custom elsewhere.”

    See, this is where we naturally and quickly go with the pernicious creed of ‘equality’. Our most basic liberties – to speak freely, the privacy of our own property, to choose with whom we associate – are crushed under Stasi-like diktats on how we must live our lives.

    The irony in in this case is that the state, for many pointless reasons, requires us to carry and show ID, yet when a private businessman requires the same thing on his property to maintain his private living down comes the boot on his face.

    He should tell the impertinent parasites of the ‘Equality Commission’ to sod off.

  6. T he right to a fair society trumps the right of some little creep to discriminate

    I believe that Ron paul at o me time had such views

    Maybe now he pretends not to have them
