    Its Discrimination, I tell You!

    At the end of January I was kidnapped ( or so I told Mrs LHA) by some lawyers who wanted a few beers on the Thursday night after we had worked into the evening.

    We hadn't even had one but the hostelry refused us entry and the doorman explained to me, Ape to Ape, that ' 'dat 'dey had rools and we is one 'em" ( thats verbatim).

    The "Rools" in an amateur sign, sets out sensible rules about dress etc but the sign included " groups of boys/men" but nothing about reserving a right of admission.

    Unaware that the group was pack of lawyers the brewery and publican were surprised by the proceedings that were sent for discrimination, as it is ok to refuse admission, but not to identify and single out chaps.

    How were they to know that as many ex rugby players we have destroyed a pub or two....

    So after mediation they agreed to change the sign and make a contribution to charity.
    Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

    Which one of you charged the other to write a letter on behalf of the rest?......

      Rules are for the guidance of the wise & the blind obedience of fools....

            There is a fine line between irony and stupidity. If I say something absurd please assume that I am being facetious.
