The British are clearly loosing their compassion

mr-garrison.jpgJames Campbell is a 61-year-old retired schoolteacher over in England. He recently took his old high school to an employment tribunal, claiming he was a victim of disability discrimination. More specifically, he claims that he was harassed by students because of his disability, and that he wasn’t able to effectively do his job. “How can I stand in front of a class with confidence to get on with my job when I am getting teased and bullied … when I think they are laughing at me all the time.”

The tribunal has now thrown Campbell’s claim out, finding that he doesn’t fall under the country’s Disability Discrimination Act. Why not, you ask?

Because judge Robert Gall had the gall — the audacity — to find that Campbell’s baldness doesn’t qualify as an impairment.

Yup, Campbell claimed that the fact that he was bald meant that being teased about his baldness was disability discrimination.
