UKIP member takes Brighton & Hove to unfair dismissal tribunal

A refuse collector in Brighton is taking Green-run Brighton & Hove City Council to a tribunal for unfair dismissal after he was accused of writing homophobic messages on three posters in a staff canteen.

UKIP member Des Jones says that he has been hounded of his job by members of the GMB union because of their hatred of UKIP. He goes on to say that he was accused of writing homophobic slogans targeting a members of staff that he doesn't know on three posters but the handwriting on all three posters is different and one of them is in joined up handwriting that he says he never learnt to do.

If his claims are true then we wish him the best of luck and hope that this results in a full and open investigation into the powerful influence of trade unions in the public sector.
