English only please!


Tom Sharp, 71, said he was talking to his half-German daughter in the   Packhorse pub in the Peterborough village of Northborough when their   conversation slipped into German.

Mr Sharp, who also served with the Royal Signals for 26 years during which he   met his wife Anni in Germany, said the pub’s landlady flew into a rage when   she heard the language being used on Wednesday evening.

He claims she told him: “We are white, you are English so you speak   English in my pub otherwise get out.”

Other drinkers who witnessed the row and spoke up for Mr Sharp and his   49-year-old daughter Nichole Falconer were also ejected, he said.

“I honestly couldn’t believe she was telling us we couldn’t speak   German. Now and again the odd German phrase slips up – it is my daughter’s   mother tongue. It is natural,” he said.
