Uproar as Black DOMINOES GROUP banned from public square

A council has been accused of RACIAL PROFILING after banning a Black dominoes group from playing in a Maida Vale square, thus limiting a culturally significant pastime in the West Indian community. The square is a haven for older people, mainly from a West Indian and minority ethnic background, to find company and spend time with likeminded folk.

A hapless council spokesman said the bam had been introduced after constant complaints about “loud amplified music, drinking alcohol and shouting & swearing”. The group say they just want to play dominoes.

The players should wear Bullingdon suits and then the council won't bother them.
