Cameron's Caring Conservatives

From the Mirror:

Sick Tory Sack Row

A former Tory party agent claimed she was forced out of her job after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Rosemary Holman, 48, is Suing Tories for unfair dismissal, sex and disability discrimination.

Mike Broomby, her boss in Sevenoaks, Kent, allegedly made life a "living nightmare" with sexist bullying. Mr Broomby denies the claims. He told the tribunal in Ashford: "I was concerned about Ms Holman's health. "I sacked her when she failed to go to a medical examination three times."

The hearing continues.


Sources close to Trixy tell me that the medical examination he demanded was with his personal friend who was a doctor. She offered to go to a doctor independent of both of them, but Mr Broomby was not having any of that.

Ooops.
