Not a day goes by without someone coming in and asking for it,"said Marianne Ørum, the shop owner."All the English people here are shaking their heads in disbelief and saythat it is insane. I agree but it is the law. It's becoming impossible to run abusiness in this country. We are not allowed to do anything anymore. It isthe way Denmark is going." The shop has now started a "Bring back Marmite" campaign to overturn aban that is seen as discriminating against Britons living and workingDenmark.Lyndsay Jensen, a Yorkshire born graphic designer working inCopenhagen, told the British ex-pat RedHerring.dk website, that Britonswould carry on spreading Marmite on their toast, even if it meantsmuggling it in to Denmark."They don't like it because it's foreign," she said.
