'HONKERS' CASE DISMISSED AS OFFICE BANTER
City bosses who referred to a female banker's breasts as “honkers” and said that women “belong at home cleaning floors” were today cleared of discrimination.
Maureen Murphy, 30, and Anna Francis, 37, lost their £3 million tribunal claim after a series of remarks were deemed “trivial” rather than offensive. They said they were forced out of their jobs by sexist and racist Japanese bosses at bank Nomura.
Quite right too. Who has not worked in an office where sexual remarks and jokes weren't part of the office banter. £3 million quid. THEIR HONKERS ARE NOT THAT FUCKING BIG!
