Some Good Old Fashioned Antisemitism From Britain

The Daily Mail reports:

A female lawyer who blurted out: ‘I cannot stand Jewish people’ during an office rant has been left with a huge legal bill after a discrimination case was brought against her by a former colleague.

Danielle Morris, 34, was subject of a three-and-a-half year investigation in front of two legal tribunals and almost lost her career after she made the remark during an office conversation.

The mother-of-two complained a Jewish man had jumped the queue at a medical centre while she was waiting to take one of her children to see a doctor.

Later she relayed the incident in the presence of a Jewish cashier at her law practice in Rossendale, Lancashire.

After making her comment, the unnamed cashier said: ‘Please do not say that’ but Mrs Morris added: ‘I don’t care, I cannot stand them.’

Three months after the incident in December 2009, the cashier left the law firm – then brought a racial and religious claim against Mrs Morris and the practice and won an undisclosed sum in damages.

Mrs Morris herself was then hauled before the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority after a further complaint of discrimination by the cashier.

It emerged the matter ‘snowballed’ despite the lawyer trying to apologise on three occasions – but the cashier refused to meet with her.

Yesterday, in a ruling made public for the first time, it emerged Mrs Morris who now works two days a week at another law firm has been fined £2,500 and ordered to pay £5,250 in costs following a hearing in London.

I don’t know what’s more shocking. The woman’s behavior or the fact she is only 34.

  1. The article implies that it is the comlaintant who is making a nuisance of themselves. There is a whiff of the offended Jew now demanding their pound of flesh. It’s not just the lawyer displaying old fashioned antisemitism.

    As a practical matter, is there a more effective way to fight anti-Semitism than through the courts? Anti-Semites, in any decent society, should know that there are social sanctions against such obnoxious and unacceptable behavior.

    1. In Britain, if you can prove you are an anti-Semite they give you an award and throw a huge party in your honor. I mean, honour.

      1. No, they elevate you to the House of Lords – see Nazir Ahmed?

        I’m sorry, but the cashier was perfectly within his rights to do what he said. He told her not to speak like that, and she carried on anyway. I’m not one for political correctness, but that was unambiguously racist.

        She got exactly what she deserved.
