    Not completely onside with the vendor (hey, I wouldn’t want anyone refusing to serve me because of my politics); but going to the cops over the non-service, and £700 in “damages” instead of going to another fast-food server? What a load.

      If someone didn’t want to do business with me I would be happy to oblige them and take my business elsewhere.

        Me too which is why I think the ‘customer’ is the bigger dick.

          For me the biggest one is a system that accepts this as a criminal offence, charges and fines anyone over it. There was no crime here.
