In recent years Subway has been attempting to sell Pork products in Jewish And Muslim communities. Subway has near 2000 stores in the whole of the UK but in Manchester they have decided to stop selling pork in 18 of their stores. This has caused mixed reactions throughout the UK.
Subway Speaks Out.
We contacted Subway to see what they had to say about this, Mark James, head of communications said,
“To be honest mate, I don’t know why we haven’t done this earlier, we’ve been wasting loads of food. Whoever dreamt up this policy of trying to sell pork to Muslims and Jews can’t have attended the same business class as me. It’s common sense. As for the accusation that we’ve been forced to make this decision by a certain religious lobby, well, our customers are entitled to believe whatever they want, but from a financial perspective why should we stock food in our stores that in some just does not sell? Of course in our stores where pork does sell we will stock it. It’s common sense.”
We contacted Alan Griffin of the “common sense coalition”, he disagreed, he stated;
“This is an attack on British peoples rights. They’re gona stop trying to sell pork to Muslims and Jews? What next? No beef for Hindus? This is England mate, have you forgot? We’re so outraged by this decision at the common sense coalition that we’re going to set up pork stalls in every community that is affected by this. We also have a plan to alleviate Israel of something that has troubled them for many years. We’re planning to open the first Nazi Memorabilia shop in Tel Aviv . There’s a gap in the market and we’re going to take advantage of that, we’ll make a fortune.”
The Reaction On The Street.
We took the liberty of speaking to people in streets over a hundred miles away from any community affected by Subways decision to see what they had to say.
Janet Loudage had this to say,
“I don’t care if pork is just not selling in some stores, I want every store in the world to stock up on Pork, because if it does not, then If I just so happen to be in an area that I fancy a pork sandwich and there is none stocked by Subway, then MY RIGHTS have been affected. I don’t care if private companies will be making a loss if they adopt this approach, because the entire business community revolves around me. This just is not right.”
Andrew Smith community relation’s editor for the Daily Fail had this to say,
“Yeah right, it’s true eh, less than 1/10 of subway stores catering for their customers means that I’m becoming a foreigner in OUR land of ENGLAND. Saudi Arabia would not stand for this kind of action from Subway at all, so why should we? I thought this was meant to be a multicultural country, yet we have Muslim and Jewish communities? What’s that all about?”
A prominent leader of the EDL has this to say,
“I’m so pissed off that Subway, a private company has decided to stop serving a product in an area that I will never go to, where it is just not selling, a company I hardly use anyway, hundreds of miles away, they have taken something away from me, this is Muslims having a huge impact on MY life in OUR land of freedom.”
The rage continues.
