Gradients of equality

I’ve had some experiences where co-workers with children were able to negotiate time off during periods when the business needed attention.

One manager who was the on call back up never came in during weekends.

His absence added to the stress I was under when staff called in sick and I had to find last minute cover.

In the end it resolved by him giving me a disciplinary. Which his seniority in the business enabled him to do.

That’s an example of someone who seemed to have their own platform of privilege which I would have liked to topple.

I’d like to hear your thoughts about LGBTQI equality and if you feel it has become better or worse since 2019. Maybe you have your own stories to share.

Apparently this man is in the fire fighting force now, although I don’t know if he ever gave up smoking…..

Yours Sincerely, Officer Clithero

I got my final reply from the Housing Ombudsman service although the name Clitheroe made me wonder if that was a such jab back at me for irritating them with my right to buy case.

Then there’s the really weird football thing, where three black players all missed their penalties which resulted in England losing the match.

So I decided to include a throwback excerpt when it mattered if you messed up during a high profile match.

And you probably would have changed your name if you were called Clitheroe.
