    Oh dear. Well at least Help for Heroes will do well out of it:

    Independent Article:
    'Harassed' female soldier wins damages award

  2. Nice result for H4H but chicks like this boil my blood. What happened to a time where a mans workplace could be adorned with such images without a woman bleating over it. Don't like it? Don't do the fcuking job. Go and sit behind a desk and look pretty or whatever it is you birds do. Why is it when a woman doesn't get her own way she starts crying depression and bullying.

    This is the reason this country is going down the pan.

    Is your watch set to 1895?
  4. You got to question what she actually 'won'. According to the article she turned down an out of court settlement of £60,000 damages and £125,000 costs. And what did she end up with? £5000 for damages plus another £500 for the distress caused by the nudie pics. Good thing for her that the law firm took on the case as a conditional fee agreement.

    Lessons learned? If the MoD offer you £185000 up front, farking well take it!
  5. Dosy Cnut.....
  6. Grot on the walls? Your bedspace fair enough.

    On a communal rest room, well out of order, whinging b1tch or not.
  7. you'll know her Carlos is she worth a poke?
  8. I think she actually works as a "dancer" in the pub opposite!
  9. I mauy be wrong here but if that offer of 60k was a part 36 offer she has won (much) less so will get clobbered for costs.

    The fact that her CFA lawyers costs are £400k compared to the £91k shows what is wrong with the CFA system; if she loses costs does that mean her lawyers get nought?

    Good on the judge IMHO.
  10. I suppose in her defence she didn't object to wearing offensive/agressive DPM or working with working classes, so she did exhibit some tolerance.

    Is yours set to 1910?
  12. My guess is that she would have been advised by her lawyers to turn down the offer- clearly they expected to make a killing. How sad.

    As I understand it, these 'no win-no fee' cases are backed by insurers rather than the shysters4U companies. A few more sensible judgements like this and they might be a bit hesitant before bringing some of the more frivilous cases to court.

    Having said that, she sounds like someone that the HAC was better of without but at the same time, the porn on the wall aspect was a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Watch set to 1950? We will shortly be arriving in the 21st Century....
  14. yep just matching her attitude.... she doesn't appear to have asked for the pics to be removed (they were framed 8O !!), just removed em and painted the place...

    admittedly they should have taken them down beforehand.
