The German village of Geschendorf, in Schleswig-Holstein, has won a fight to stop McDonald’s opening on its outskirts because it doesn’t sell sausages and sauerkraut.

(In 2008 the A1 will be joined to their village, but the mayor, Fritz Kock, 66, said, “We are quite happy with the local restaurant where we can get sausages and schnitzel,” all nine local councillors supported the decision. You can add one English teacher to that.)
