Nottingham's Old Angel Inn Cancels 'bag A ?' Event

Recommended Posts

A pub has been forced to cancel its alternative speed dating event this Valentine's Day after its poster was branded inappropriate.

The Old Angel Inn in Nottingham used a poster with the slogan "bag a slag, grab a hag" to promote its event.

It has caused controversy after several people complained about the content.

The city council's licensing department said the landlord had breached a part of the pub's licence which states it must not use inappropriate promotions.

Ruth Greenburg, from the Nottingham Feminist Action Network, said the use of the word slag was offensive and derogatory to women.

"This is beyond the fun barrier. It is a very negative, sexist image of women," she added.

"Is that all women are - slags and hags?

"What self-respecting woman is going to go along to a speed dating event that sells itself to men in that way?"

I wonder how many women would have turned up to this delightful evening?
