Starbucks ask Irish customers 'What makes you proud to be British?'

Irish coffee drinkers have been asked what makes them proud to be British.

The gaffe was made by the world’s most famous coffee chain, Starbucks.

The US firm had asked the question via its Irish Twitter page, prompting followers to reply with a firm roasting.

Starbucks last night apologised for the blooper, explaining the tweet had been intended for its British customers only.
