Typical UK nonsense. Via Leicester Mercury: A customer at a Leicester branch of KFC has said he was “shocked” when he was refused a hand-wipe as it might offend other restaurant-goers. Graham Noakes, 41, said he was astonished when staff at the fast food chain’s outlet in St George’s retail park refused to give him a hand-wipe because it was against its Halal policy. Staff said this was because the wipes are soaked in an alcohol-infused liquid. Alcohol is forbidden in the Muslim Holy book, the Quran. The Leicester-based Federation of Muslim Organisations has called the decision “bizarre”. Graham said: “They told me it might offend other customers. “I explained that it wouldn’t affect me. In fact – I told them I like alcohol, so it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest. “When they wouldn’t give me one, I was disgusted. “I will never be going to KFC again.” The father-of-two added: “I’ve never experienced anything like this before, I couldn’t believe it.
