Bullied Lesbian wants lots of Dosh

Posted in Other Stuff by 200

Another week another compensation story. This one is about lesbian soldier Kerry Fletcher who has just won an industrial tribunal which agreed that she had been harassed by a sergeant who asked her for a threesome & sent her lewd text messages. She went sick from the Royal Artillery stables in North Yorkshire & complained that the MOD had not taken her complaints of harassment seriously.

She is claiming compensation for stress, hurt feelings & loss of earnings. The sum required? £400,000.  She’s 32, probably has under 30 years working life left even if she chooses to work for the the maximum amount of time, so either she’s saying she’ll never be able to work again or that’s one hell of an amount of stress & hurt feelings.

Bugger me, but if you get your arms & legs blown off in Afghanistan, you only get £161,000. How the fuck can anyone justify £400,000? I get fed up to the back teeth with people who are somewhat hard done by & want hundreds of thousands of pounds compo while people who deserve that amount are left with derisery settlements. I think she wants £400,000 for stress, hurt feelings, loss of earnings & greed.

Judging by previous settlements, she’ll probably get it too.

    Searching google for your page also told me 200 weeks = 3.83307297 years.

    Anyway, Mr McBean is probably only getting £161,000 because people like her demand £400,000 for that, and even Claire Huntington (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/tayside_and_central/7511371.stm) getting money because the Army should have “inspected the rockface for loose sections ahead of the exercise and should have kept cadets at a safe distance away from the area when others were climbing.” because she was hit in the face with a falling rock. Lord knows what she’d demand if she were shot at.

    I’ve often thought about this sort of unfathomable nonsense and I’d like the twat directly resposible for these sort of settlements (I know this one’s not done yet) to have to stand up in public and explain why this happens. It’s just too much isn’t it?

    They blather on about our “accountability” but they never seem to have to explain theirs.

    I always wanted to be a lesbian. If she couldn’t take a joke etc…. All I can say is, I am glad that I didn’t have her near me in a crisis, ‘Oh Shit, someone is firing at me, and I have just had my nails done…’
