Frozen Custard Shop’s ‘English Only’ Policy Causing Heated Controversy
Outrageous. I should be able to order my ice cream in German like any other tourist. 
If they do not cater to my language, they should not cater to other languages.

Labour’s Tom Watson Says ‘Selfish’ Boris Johnson Has ‘Hijacked’ EU Referendum
And a good thing too. Most Britons do not understand what stay or leave actually means for themselves, the country or the world.  A personality contest: "Do you like Boris or David & Jeremy?" is something the electorate can get their teeth into.
