Former American President Bill Clinton stunned drinkers in an English pub when he popped in for lunch and ordered a pint of Snakebite. Clinton wanted the lethal mix of cider and lager to go with his steak and ale pie but landlord Jamie Allen refused to serve him the mind-blowing concoction. Allen told Clinton that he could lose his licence for serving him the drink to which the ex-President replied, "That's a shame - it would have brought out my true personality." Jamie, 28, landlord of the Old Bell Tavern in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, says, "I told him maybe that was something I didn't want to see. He burst out laughing. "He tried a few real ales then settled for a Coke" Clinton was attending a nearby business conference. Before he settled on the pub for lunch, his aides conducted a thorough search of the premises.
