A BRANCH of Wetherspoons has been slammed online after its landlady allegedly ‘threw out’ a blind veteran because he supported Tommy Robinson.
The incident occurred outside The Knights Templar on Chancery Lane in the City of London.
Eyewitness Damian Knox said on Facebook: “I witnessed a blind veteran with a guide dog refused service and asked to leave The Knights Templar in London because the landlord’s wife suspected he’d been at the Tommy demo.”
He said: “A blind veteran is being thrown out of a pub because they suspect he may be a Tommy Robinson supporter, which he is but that’s not illegal is it.”
“Apparently that’s enough now to throw a blind veteran out of a pub.”
“He’s done nothing wrong.” the man added.
An eyewitness said: “It’s mental isn’t it, I can’t believe it.”
A man who appeared to be the pub’s manager seemed to rectify the mistake and said: “If he wants to come in I will give him a meal and a drink on the house.”
