'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!

Couple of troughers on the make. I sometimes visit my largely female staffed company office, their sexual banter knows no bounds and there are often pictures of semi-naked male 'celebreties' brightening up their walls. Do I care? do I fuck.

Off piste maybe but, the Scotsman is spoofing the Hootsman?

Banned, that's what it is to be an object of sexual desire. It's just something we good looking fuckers have got to put up with!

Bugger, thanks for that. It made a nice wee post. Sorry I forgot to give you a h/t. I'll do it now.
