Ignorance Of The Law Is No Excuse

A spokesman for the business, who would only give his name as Mr Tak, said Ms McKenzie has been offered a free meal as an apology.
He said: “I genuinely did not know it was a rule with guide dogs and when she told me I offered her a table where there was space.
“It was an genuine, uneducated mistake that we will not make again.
“As we have only been here two years, we’re relatively new to the business and haven’t learnt everything yet but we do not discriminate against anybody.”
What else 'haven't they learned yet' (in the two years they've been there!)? Food safety regulations? VAT rulings?

Maybe the authorities would like to check?

It is if you are from the 'right' religious grouping.

That used to be a valid statement but when Plod doesn't even understand the tome that is the law and it changes so often then it is now a legitimate excuse in my eyes.

However, there are some rules that have not changed in the last few years and have been raised in public several times so there is no real excuse and this dog one is one of those.

"...so there is no real excuse.."

Except the one anon above points out.
