Black Dalek loses Appeal

Sorry got the headline wrong. The image threw me for a second. It should of course have read:- Teaching assistant loses Muslim veil appeal.

You can get the full story here but basically it boils down to the fact that the Dalek teaching assistant from West Yorkshire has lost her appeal against an employment tribunal's decision that not being allowed to wear a full veil at work was discrimination.

Aisha Azmi was dismissed in November from Headfield CofE Junior School, in Thornhill Lees, Dewsbury, weeks after her claims of discrimination were dismissed by the tribunal.

Now I am not sure what sex Azmi is - probably female but could be some Darth Vader wannabee transexual but whatever lies behind the mask has done very well out of the British Taxpayer.

A nice long holiday being suspended on full pay for over two years and then when judgement is finally made and it seems that common-sense has prevailed and the tribunal dismisses her claims of discrimination and harrasment.
It then spoils everything by awarding her £1,000 of our money. This was later increased to £1,100 for some other strange reason.

So in this twisted world we now live in. Some people win even when they lose.

If you want to put an end to this kind of Madness then vote British National Party in May.

You'd have got a £1,100 fine for wasting their time more like Shieldwall.
