Legal history was made today as an employment tribunal ruled that channel 4 did not break the law when they sacked eccentric horse botherer John McCririck on account of his being a complete wanker.
The ruling has major equalities implications and sets a precedent which critics suggest may lead to that fat pervert from your office losing the legal protection against discrimination he has hitherto presumably been afforded.
A tribunal source said "The onus would normally have been on the employer to demonstrate the complainant's twatishness but in this case it wasn't necessary as the complainant spent most of the time huffing and picking his nose. His major mistake was turning up."
Dressed like a prat outside court, McCririck bellowed "The verdict isn't surprising as the whole legal system is run by lesbians anyway. The tribunal judge was a bloody woman as well but did you see the pair of crackers she had under that gown. She can quash my case any day and no mistake."
