English teenager refused service at Polish shop

it's doubtful if we will ever find out why this 'Polski sklep' can ban British customers and nothing will ever be done about it

All shops have the right to refuse service. Or do you advocate shops being forced to sell products to people? :)

Once again, what was the reason for the refusal?

you come here and refuse to sell 17 year old girls a tin of pop, kid.

Has it ever occured to you that just perhaps, if she didn't know what she was trying to buy, it might have been alcohol? Redd's beer with apple flavour or other flavours, Ginger Beer (alcoholic). wiƛniowka (cherry vodka). Might look like soft drinks.

Speculation again, but we never hear what she was trying to buy.

You know, that reminds me. A few months ago my 19 year old niece was refused sale of a DVD with a 15 certificate because she couldn't prove she was over 15. They wouldn't let her grandmother buy it in case she then bought it and gave it to her niece. This was in Asda. We originally thought it was because they really thought she was under 15... now, with the recent news about Asda's meat supplier only hiring Poles, we KNOW they wouldn't sell the DVD to her because she wasn't Polish!!!!!!!!

Nationality, Kaley Leighton was refused service for being British in her own country.

I'm sure you can prove it! otherwise someone can take you for a liar .....

Again, speculation. Where is a quote from her saying the shop-owner specifically said he didn't serve Britons?

I think refusing to serve Kaley Leighton and news reporter Emma Franklin on account of them commiting the henious crime of being British lends a bit of weight to the 'theory', if the Goole times printed lies encouraged by a xenophobic journalist, she would have been sacked and the paper would have offered a grovelling apology, well it is PC Britain after all, just look at the venom Poles on this forum spew out and tell me they hold this country in anything less than contempt.

This story is one year old now, surely they must have concluded the official investigation by now, yet I can’t find a single article on how this case turned out. Besides a catchy headline there’s nothing to it after all.

Maybe (fave word with some), we should contact the shop owner, the journalist who put her name to the story, Humberside Police and Kaley Leighton herself (she is on facebook), then we will hear the full story from different sources.

SO....(drum roll)....does the Polski Sklep in Goole exclude potential customers on account of their nationality?

The 'Polish community in Goole' have a website translated in to various lingos, just find the flsags click on Uncle sam and you will find it hasn't yet been translated into English.

So much for multi culturalism.

YOU picked up the old thread, YOU do the search and provide the conclusion backed up by facts.

I would be happy to read something with substance for a change, otherwise you are a troll.

No, I'm just curious as to the truth, why would Kaley Leighton invent this story? A journalist backed her her up and I'm prepared to ask all you Multi Cultural lovers out there if your utopia really works, I think this guy pulled the anti British yellow card out knowing he would never get a red, I believe Kayley Leighton, she is innocent until proven guilty, was she or was she not refused service on account of her nationality?

As for wearing an England shirt...I was born in Wrexham and went to primary school there but grew up in South Yorkshire, I love England and English people and I had the most incredible time at secondary school and Uni, but I draw the line at putting the 3 lions on, I was born in a border town and will even support them in the World cup......but not that far! English people have ben fantastic to me but I'm not going that far.

is your site translated into other languages? Maybe you would get more customers and continue to built your empire.

I heard that the statement was and I quote; "We don’t serve chavs" and this case was dismissed on technicality. Chavs are not a race after all.

Because she's a chav.

Make your own mind up - facebook.com/people/Kaley-Leighton/626745316

I'd say the shopkeeper is quite within his right to refuse to serve some underage chav.

Without finding out the facts first?

And, yes, my company does have a website with the translation option.

I don't believe in Witch hunts, if Kayley turned up on spec at my office asking for a job, I would find something for her and go out of my way even if it meant I was out of pocket, if some Pole turned up 'Sorry mate, no jobs', I wouldn't give him the time of day after reading the anti British hatred on here.

You will also find it wasn't me who picked this thread up, no chance of an apology though, I suppose. I was quite surprised to find it, I just accepted that Poles were as much anti British as Islam4UK, hook hamza and the other assorted nutters we are forced to let in to this overcrowded hellhole.

give me one good reason why I should employ you or any Pole above my own people

Because the British workers cant get their arses out of bed in a morning and will spend the day drinking tea, scratching their arse and complaining maybe?

(By the way- I am British)

Many Brits think that way too, vor. British employers are generally happy with the output of immigrants.

The article is just designed to stoke up bad feelings. An underage person should not be served alcohol, period!

She wasn't trying to buy alcohol.

If Dyson or whatever his name is doesn't want to get out of bed, that's his problem, my 78 staff manage to get to work every day and they're 100% British. I notice James Dyson outsourced jobs to Malaysia.

I am the Managing director and indirectly this money comes out of my pocket, my company, my money, my wage bill, my staff, my responsibility, my choice.

I'm happy with my British staff and I believe in British people to the extent that I trust, believe, employ and respect them.

Any Problems?

I wonder if had entered a BNP pub what would have been the service then.

I don't believe in Witch hunts

Your relentless pursuit of this subject would suggest otherwise. One year has passed since the story broke, not a single article to support the accusation made originally in this case. We all hear what we want to hear and no one will change that even if there’s no real evidence to suggest othewise. Right? Your nick does not do you justice.

I think anyone should be able to refuse serving teenagers, just because. And when they go whining to their parents, they be given a lecture on fine points of making a good first impression.

I suggested we contact the shop owner, Humberside Police, the journalist who put her name to the story and Ms Leighton herself, only then can we have a truly balanced outcome, any better ideas to solve this mystery?

No, you’re doing fine. Since you want to seek the truth please contact them directly. I would suggest contacting the local investigator in this case and ask them directly as to what happen. Than get back to us with your finding. I did the search on the net on this subject and besides the original article, it’s subsequent reprints and few commotions that it caused on some forums there’s nothing, which suggest an empty accusation as far as I’m concerned. Like this would be the first time a teenager lies to get out of sticky situation.
