Outrage after Irish bar in Luton refuses to serve people wearing poppies

An Irish bar in England has sparked widespread outrage after staff banned customers wearing poppies on Remembrance Sunday.

Bar 32 in Luton kicked out anyone wearing a poppy in memory of soldiers killed in war, then gloated online claiming that the flower was a ‘terrorist’ symbol and telling opponents to ‘grow up’.

The bar’s decision set off a furious backlash, with hundreds of drinkers pledging to boycott the pub because of its ‘disgusting behaviour’.

The owners of the bar, which is apparently named after the 32 counties in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, are believed to be staunch Irish republicans.
