Veteran’s day celebrations at the major London retailer:
Harrods bans soldiers on Poppy Day:
Lieutenant Daniel Lenherr had just taken part in a parade honouring Britain’s war dead when the London department store turned him away at the door.
The security guard told him other customers might be intimidated by the uniform.
. . .
The store has stood by their dress policy, saying: “There is a long-standing tradition at Harrods that would normally preclude customers who are wearing non-civilian attire from entering the store.
“A lot of people assume that somebody in uniform is either there on official duty, which could cause them alarm, or they assume they’re a member of staff and ask them where the lavatories are and so on.”
Now, excuse me for a moment, but I’m confused.
We’re in the age of terrorism. London itself has been attacked, and people died. Yet Harrods has no problem with allowing fully covered people walk in and peruse the entire store. As I pointed out last month when I wrote about the first time I saw a woman completely concealed by “veils”, which by the way, happened to be at Harrods,
Aside from her hands, you couldn’t even tell if that person was a man or a woman.
Anyone in such a get-up could be carrying anything under such garment. Weapons, explosives, name it.
To the Politically Uncorrect like myself, the presence and the honoring of servicemen, in uniform or not, would indeed be reassuring.
As for the second part,
they assume they’re a member of staff and ask them where the lavatories are and so on.
Harrods need not worry.
(Incidentally, people constantly ask me if I work at stores when I’m shopping. All it takes is to comb your hair, wear casual-Friday-type clothes and a little lipstick. I take it as a compliment.)
This makes at least two places in Britain now where the uniform isn’t welcome, the other being hospitals in Birmingham.
The truth is, the radical Islamification of the UK is not just a nightmare.
It’s happening, right in front of our eyes.
