I really don't see how this works, or how the PL can get away with this
What he did was thoughtless, but was sent to a private individual,who understood the wider context of the message, from a personal phone. What has that got to do with his job or the pl? He's lost his living through the spite of a former friend, judged by men of whom some, I have no doubt, have gleefully swapped sexist and racist jokes, and/or watched internet pornography or 'stag' performances. Is the idea now that we must live blameless lives, at least as far as the public record is concerned? And let's not have any 'PC gone mad' nonsense, thanks, this is nothing to do with 'PC'.
