Pub Landlord Told To Leave Welsh Pub For Asking Gun-Toting Man To Speak English

by | 21st, June 2011

REGULARS at the Royal Oak in Penrhyndeudraeth, near Porthmadog in Gwynedd, Wales, are ordering their drinks in Welsh. they say things like ‘I’ll have a Malibu and Cocacocogh”.

It’s just the way things are done in those parts. And it still is because when the new management requested that patrons order their fizzy drinks in English. a local man pulled a gun and cochcochcochcocked it. He was arrested, and the old management team has been brought back.

Says Dewi Lewis to the news. He’s a local councillor. He speaks in English:

“Welsh is the first language round here and many customers are used to ordering their drinks in Welsh. It seems that managers didn’t like it. People were asked to order in English, which they didn’t like, and things went from bad to worse.”

The new landlord tells us:

“I just got a call from the company saying ‘can you come and run the pub’ because there has been an incident. Police have told the former licensee to leave the village and somebody has to be her to keep the pub open, although we have to wait to get the all clear. I was surprised, I have never heard of something like this happening here before.

Anorak has one word anyone can understand: supermarket.
