You live and learn
From the EDL forum I learn the interesting Norwegian word pubrasist, which does appear to translate directly as "pub racist", used in a piece in the dourly Norwegian organ Aftenposten, where the EDL are described as
en eksplosiv miks av høyreekstreme, pubrasister og hooligans(an explosive mix of right-wing extremists, pub racists and hooligans).
Cor! I notice my local Wetherspoon's has a notice on the door inviting people to become the "Foursquare mayor" of the pub. Next time I go in there I must ask the duty manager if I can apply to be the "pub racist".
