We have no chance. The human race can no longer exist on the planet when someone can move in next door to a restaurant and then get the local government to order the restaurant to remove the ventilation fan because of the offensive smell of bacon.

It happened in the world capital of political correctness, the UK.

It would be pathetic enough if a Muslim, who chose to live near a restaurant complained about smelling bacon, but the guy who complained said it was because his Muslim friends didn’t want to visit him any more.

If his Muslim friends are immigrants, somebody needs to explain the meaning of the word assimilate to them or tell them it migjt be a good idea for them to stay in the country where they never had  to worry about the horror of someone having bacon and eggs in te morning.

    Why didn’t they just find a fatty somewhere in the neighborhood with a nicer house to trade places with him? I’m sure the fatty would love to live in the aroma of bacon.

    • YNGController

      The difference between here and there is that bacon will be banned outright here.

    Great Britain–the world’s largest open air prison….

  • saneman

    I wonder what he would have done if I was next door as a private resident making bacon.

    I believe Andrew McCarthy at NRO has written about “Sharia Creep” happening in the UK. I would like to know if this was in one of those neighborhoods that is being effectively turned into a self-governing area almost outside the jurisdiction of ordinary law.

    The real thing that’s annoying is that the poor owner’s husband is a Turkish Muslim who works there with her, and he clearly doesn’t have a problem with it, nor do his Muslim family and friends. The worst part, according to her, is that the council that made the determination wouldn’t even hear her out. Makes me wonder if UK has any concept of “due process of law” like we do in the 5th and 14th Amendments. (There’s one benefit of having a document entitled “Constitution” unlike the hodgepodge of writings that make up the “English Constitution.”)

      Immigration only works if it’s followed by assimilation. If they don’t like our customs here, stay home.

      • Federalist10

        Immigration is the interesting part. The guy who complained is “Graham Webb-Lee” – doesn’t sound like an immigrant name to me. This sounds like some bleeding heart pansy who’s adopting the cause of the nanny state. I consider these pinheads more dangerous than the immigrants who refuse assimilation.

      Same thing could happen in American not withstanding the 5th and 14th amendment. Its an old body of property law called nuisance law. I don’t like all of the potential applications of the law myself, but it isn’t new and it isn’t limited to the UK.

  • Meathead

    And here in the US someone went into a bar and was offended by the smell of cigarette smoke.

    • JohnSteigerwald

      Don’t get me started on the smoking ban.

      • Lefty

        I LOVE the smoking ban. As I love the drink tax. I think there should be a 300% tax on tobacco, legalize pot, tax the hell out of that, legalize prostitution, tax the hell out of that, and suddenly, we’re healthier, in less debt, creating jobs, and satisfied sexually!
        And really, the smoking ban is largely because of employees. No one should be exposed to harmful smoke for long hours every day when they’re just trying to make a living. Especially in this economy.

        • JohnSteigerwald

          Of course you love it. One size fits all, right? How about if I want to open a restaurant ON MY PRIVATE PROPERTY and make it smoker friendly. Any employee applying for a job would know they were going to be exposed to coigarette smoke. (good place for smoking waitresses and bartenders to work) and EVERY customer who enters would know that there would be people smoking there. Would that be too much freedom for you to handle? How many bar employees are subject to ear damage from working in close proximity to loud bands? What if I don’t like loud music pounding me from 15 feet away? Should I demand that bands turn down the volume or, I don’t know, should I go to a bar WHERE THERE IS NO FRIGGING BAND?@!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Ochotexto

            As long as you pay the bartenders and waitresses., many young., a union wage with full bennies. Second hand smoke kills., you can’t exploit them.
            The smoking ban is great. And I smoke cigars., just not dumb or rude enough to light one up in front of folks eating.

          • JohnSteigerwald

            How about I post the salary and the benefits and they decide? What if the people eating came to the frigging’ restaurant BECAUSE IT WAS ADVERTISED AS SMOKER FRIGGIN FRIENDLY? What if I saw a market for a restaurant that catered to people who like to smoke a cigar after dinner and nobody FORCED you to set foot in it?

          • Ochotexto

            Because you’ll exploit young people who need those type jobs into working under those conditions for shit pay. The rules changed the day they scientifically proved second hand smoke kills. By the way., cigar only type places are thriving since the ban. Common sense.

          • JohnSteigerwald

            There aren’t enough waiter, bartender and waitress jobs out there in non-smoking restaurants? Come on. Common sense is giving people the freedom to choose where they want to work and where they want to eat and drink.

          • Mike

            So if pot gets legalized it should be up to the bar or restaurant owner to determine if he lets people smoke it with their meal or drink as well?

          • JohnSteigerwald

            Of course. The bar is his private property. He should be able to do whatever he wants as long as it’s legal.
