Butchers Shop Told To Change Name

Recommended Posts

I've been reading the story of the butcher on Moston Lane (Where part of people like us was filmed:Moston/Harpurhey) called Black's. The new owner has been asked if his name is Black and if it's not he's to change the name of the shop.
It's upsetting the local ethnic population which is made up of a large number of West Africans.


There's a story here about how rough the area is

“The quality of the shops on Moston Lane has also gone down. We must have two dozen hairdressers within 200 yards and some of the problems from certain shops at night have been well-documented.”

Are hairdressing shops dangerous - all those scissors maybe?

Is this for real?

I don't know Moston! I used to have a GF in Levenshulme. The local butchers (forget the name), had a sign outside which said "Eat my meat". Would this be allowed now?

He should change the name to Whites....that would really upset them.

I bet the story is made up...probably by a clever marketeer working for the shop itself.

Indeed, it shouldnt be called a shop, as this is upsetting to the criminals in the local area.

Reminds me of Peckham in London Sarah...a few years back there were dozens of "Barber Shops" open all sorts of hours on a Friday and Saturday night with no customers in sight. They must be very generous these barber shops...staying up all night in case anyone wants an "emergency haircut" :)

One of my favourite time killers on the bus home after an evening out is to count the number of people in the "Barber Shops" along woolworth road, Camberwell and Peckham at midnight.

I suspect it might be, but it has got a lot of people talking!

Allegedly the curry mile in Rusholme does more to import workers because there are no home grown cooks suitable for them.

it's a bit mad really. That we import anyone into the UK to work when we still have nearly 2M people on the dole. Is no one capable of learning or is it that we are crap at teaching.

Hmm. Maybe I'd better rethink my business idea of opening a petshop specialising in Maine Coons...

And Blow Job, my hairdressing idea...

Ok.. Anyone care to educate an old duffer as to exactly what all this talk of "barber shops" is all about?

Euphemism?

In some areas, they're a front for drug deals/pimps/gangland executions and midnight deliveries of exotic bushmeat.

Allegedly.

People do Occasionally get their haircut in them.

P

There are also video rental shops for just that purpose! Actually you hire illegal firearms for doing "crimes".

Thanks.. Guessed it must be something like that but have never really noticed it myself.

I'll have to make like a politician and "get back in touch" with the rougher parts of town!

Asked by who and told by who and under what legal authority? Sounds like some loudmouth local councillor or similar pretending to have powers they don't.

Neither. The immigrant has an incentive to work, the native none.
