Old Palace Lodge Slams Its Doors On Norman King Petitioners

In an incredibly childish manner, the manager of the Old Palace Lodge, Dunstable, tonight slammed its doors in the face of a peaceful deputation to present a petition of over 4,000 signatures from people who want to see the Norman King saved.

The astonishing move came after protesters had peacefully met outside the former inn, in Church Street, for about a hour. At about 9.05pm the small group of protestors moved towards the Inn where they had planned to present the petition to  the current owner at The Old Palace Lodge. As the group walked towards the Lodge car park entrance, a person claiming to be the manager, said "If you step in here, I am calling the police."

Then, as the group crossed into the car park entrance towards the front door, the manager said, "I am not accepting 'it'. I am calling the police". And with that, he dashed inside, and slammed the door shut.

A copy of the petition was eventually handed to a person staying at the lodge, who was admitted back in after an evening stroll.

Five minutes later the door opened and the petition was launched through the door onto the road!
