UK Train Worker Sues After Being Fired For Questioning “White Privilege” Training

Made comments during private conversation with his wife.

A train worker is suing a company who fired him for questioning “white privilege” diversity training during a conversation with his wife.

60-year-old Simon Isherwood, who works as a train conductor, was fired by West Midlands Trains for gross misconduct.

“After the diversity training held in March 2021, Isherwood forgot his microphone was still on and, speaking to his wife, some colleagues heard him questioning white privilege,” reports Reclaim the Net. “He was then reported by colleagues who were “angered” by the comments.”

“I couldn’t be arsed because I thought, ‘you know what, I’ll just get fucking angry,’” Isherwood reportedly told his wife in a conversation captured on a hot mic.

“All I was trying to do was understand the subject better – we had been asked to think of questions so I did exactly what I was asked to do. I said Ghana because it’s something I always used to talk about with one of my colleagues, who is from Ghana and supported me,” he added.

  1. You had 'wrong thought' and must be punished for the good of all. How dare you do what we say because that is not what we want you to think. Also, be happy a shovel didn't come up and hit you in the face for actually thinking (Don't panic).

  2. 20 State's AG's signed onto this letter. It's worth reading, as the language isn't nice & might be called hurty by some precocious twerps. They even roast that asinine Nina Jackowicz, the Comrade Commie who will be in charge of Big Brother's Ministry of Truth.

    No statutory authority exists to support your creation of a board of government censors... It would be amusing that a self-proclaimed expert in disinformation like Ms. Jankowicz has proven to be so bad at identifying it, except that you have placed her in charge of doing so on behalf of the United States government.11 It is also extremely troubling that Ms. Jankowicz has described parents in Loudoun County, Virginia who object to the indoctrination of their children with Critical Race Theory as “disinformers” engaged in “disinformation for profit.”12
