The brakes have been put on a pub’s speed dating night following complaints that its ‘Bag a Slag’ slogan was offensive and its free drinks offer irresponsible.
As reported in the Nottingham Post, Angela Rawson licensing manager at the council said that the event ‘could bring the city into disrepute’ while ‘inappropriate promotions’ could force them to revoke the pub’s license.

There had been five complaints to the council which took aim at the language used in the poster in addition to the drinks offer.
Ms Rawson said: ‘It wasn’t like other drink promotions because it suggested it was just for one section of people, in this case women, and no suggestion of limit.
‘We try to work with venues to see if there is a way ahead, but it was the owner who took the final decision to cancel.’
While the poster raised a few eyebrows, its designer, 21 burberry outlet year old barmaid Lydia Hunt, said she didn’t mean to offend anyone.
‘I’d call myself a feminist and just think that people need to take things a bit less seriously. It’s not meant to offend it’s meant to promote a speed dating night,’ she said.
