Absolute Madness

If this sort of insanity didn’t happen so often I’d be shocked speechless but as it seems to be becoming an almost regular occurence I’m simply stunned for the umpteenth time.

Tilern DeBique, from the West Indies was a soldier in the British army and she had a child. One day she didn’t turn up on parade as she couldn’t find someone to look after her daughter. Naturally she was disciplined  and so she made a complaint under race and sex discrimination laws and was awarded £17000 compensation. Do I need to say anymore? The mind as they say, just boggles.
