It's no good

...I'm not saying anything that a million other people aren't saying faster and better. So, I'm shutting up the Lighthouse for good. I'll still be commenting elsewhere though. It's been fun.

Bye all.

I'm baaaack!

And I'm angry.

The court heard Miss Green believed she was targeted by four women - Valerie Alexander, manager of the insurance division; her PA Fiona Gregg; telephone directory administrator Daniella Dolbear; and Jenny Dixon, a PA.

Bullied by your own PA?

'She was promoted twice before she received stress counselling in March 2000, paid for by the company, and assertiveness training.... Her job was kept open until September 2003....'

....And then got 800 feckin' grand handed to her! Could they have done any more for her?

A man would have been laughed out of court with these accusations.

Does this woman not realise the damage she has done for the prospects of other women who want to work in the City? As if women don't have enough problems getting into banks, this will make hiring City managers even more wary of hiring litigious victims of 'stress' and 'bullying'.
