The incident drew criticism from Caroline Lucas, MP for Brighton Pavilion.
She said: “This is just the kind of anti-common sense example of a policy being taken too far.
“It beggars belief that a business would deem this sort of treatment of people acceptable and allow it to happen in the first place, let alone again.
“I trust that the store’s management will apologise immediately and train its staff appropriately in future to ensure this never happens again.”Good lord! What happened?
Surely Caroline Lucas, of all people, wouldn't make a fuss over nothing?
Rosemary Frazer, campaigns manager at disability charity Scope, said: “Companies should have a clear and transparent policy on whether disabled people can use their accessible toilets for free.
“Disabled people often find town and city centres don’t meet their needs. As a wheelchair user I know it can be incredibly difficult to find accessible toilets.”Wait...what?
Shaun Thorogood, 30, who has cerebral palsy, is the latest customer to tell The Argus they were refused entry to the loos at the Burger King restaurant in North Street, Brighton.Ahhh, yes. The not-unreasonable demand from a business that only paying customers use it's facilities has been translated (by the usual suspects) into a demand that certain identity groups be considered privileged above all others.
