Okay so I nicked this from some Sunday Times comment by Dominic Lawson today as it made me smirk. If only I had been clever enough to pen it myself.
It seems holding firm to environmental beliefs has this week been ruled by a court of law to be akin to being religious. Tim Nicholson claims that his redundancy in July from property firm Grainger wasn’t merely routine. Instead he’s been in the high court professing that he was sacked off because his views were at odds with the companies senior executives. And he won.
If you were head of sustainability for a company and you got wind that your execs had requested a forgotten blackberry to be jetted over as they’d left it behind you’d be a bit peeved. If you mysteriously got made redundant a few months later after kicking up a stink you might get putting two and two together. Yet, environmental ‘beliefs’ as ‘faith’? This guy’s lawyer must have been a miracle worker, was his name Moses?
