Private Hylton claimed he was racially abused on a 'regular basis'

Kerry Hylton, a Jamaican army chef, was called a 'black *******' by a Lance Corporal colleague whilst serving with the Welsh Guard near Buckingham Palace.
Pte Hylton, of Woolwich, received one payout last April for the racist insults, but lodged another claim that was due to be heard yesterday.
However, it emerged a settlement with the Ministry of Defence had been reached.

No chance of that, as you are well aware, you cannot be racist to a white English male.

Racism is a colour thing, sadly, white is not a colour in the spectrum of racism.

So Scots and Welsh can get payouts, by your reckoning :wink:

I do know what you really meant though.

Apparently, they can, as long as it is not used to purchase deep fried food, cocaine, or sexual rights to farm animals.

Hope this helps ;)

IIRC this tw4t also tried claiming for being called 'Paris' as his surname is Hylton. Apparently he regarded this as in some way degrading.

So will all those called 'Ted' Heath, 'Harry' Cross, 'Bernard' Manning etc when that wasn't really their first name get a chance for compo?
