BOXTOPS, there are many Muslims who will not use any product with acohol added as a constituent, skin cleansers for example. There are many who belive the sale of alcohol is wrong, hence the recent demonstrations involving certain shops in London recently and see this link too, http://www.inter-islam.org/Prohibitions/khmrmk.htm
My thoughts also Gromit, I cannot beleive this is official policy.
The Regulations would support M & S.
As this is being widely reported on various websites including The Muslim Times, if it isn't actual policy then M&S are being very slow in refuting it, even for a Sunday.
Tora are you sure Mr Green runs M&S? I thought it was Mark Bolland, CEO?
This could explain the increase in Moslem chiropractic clinics. Their ability to get others to bend over backwards with just a gentle push.
I have checked with Snopes ( urban myths) to see if this is a myth & nothing there to report so I would suspect that it could be true. What a state of affairs I am utterly gobsmacked to say the least. Where is it all going to end ?.

Robert Swannell is the big cheese

Ah yes the regulations ... which are?

This story is spreading like wildfire especially on aggragated news sites (like the Times of India) but they are essentially regurgitating the Telegraph/Mail story.

The story involves an unnamed customer, at an unnamed branch served by an unnamed assistant and quotes an unnamed M&S spokeman. I need more than that before I can be bothered to light my flaming torch and get my pitchfork.

M&S prides itself on its customer service. This flies in the face of that, which is why I am doubting its authenticity. On a practical level, don't you think such a policy would be unworkable? The customer is supposed to guess the sales assistants religion before they join a queue and then only refused at the till. No notices, no warning. No one could run a shop like that.
So the muslims who used to sell wine in my local corner shop are flambéed in Hell?

not religious in context, but I have been refused service at the till with no warning in both Tesco and asda. this is because I had no ID on me when buying whisky (I'm 56, and in no conceivable way do I appear to be under 18). There are no notices; so yes, shops do get run in that way.
Am I still living in Britain ?.
This would just be another in a long list of accommodations made to the religion of permanent offence.
e.g.

I'll take checkout 13, a vegetarian atheist refusing to sell sausage rolls or model nativity scenes.

NO
You are living in a satellite state of the EU.

And it's through that Magna Charter
As were signed by the Barons of old
That in England today we can do what we like
So long as we do what we're told

From The Magna Charter by Marriott Edgar 1880- 1951.

Thanks WR, that cleared that up for me ..
Tora, they are...
JOMIFL regulations were introduced in 2003 and there is now the Equality Act 2010 which applies.
Why are there some who wish to dismiss this story, and even going to the lengths of suggesting that it may even not be quite true?

Yet if this was a report on Christians refusing to sell certain items, then they would not even go to the trouble of making similar such excuses, but they would be straight in with their now well known attacks on the Christian faith.
