    Default Flip the Bird Bird Has Been Sacked

    linky


    A woman has been fired from her job after an image of her trailing President Donald Trump’s motorcade on her bike to give him the middle finger went viral.

    Juli Briskman attracted headlines around the world after a White House photographer snapped her cycling past President Trump’s motorcade as it left the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia to flip him the bird last month.

    Despite the fact the motorcade then overtook the 50-year-old she eventually caught up and gave Mr Trump the one-finger greeting again.

    Ms Briskman has now said she was fired from her job at government contractor Akima LCC where she worked in marketing and communications.
    There is no crowd funding link for us to show appreciation for her efforts to tide her over until she gets a new role.

    Just think, after that which cannot be named has finally come to it's conclusion, the UK could have the same fantastic labour laws that the USA has
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Disgraceful way the lady was treated. The UK needs far more like her.

    Indeed - and we need to fight this naziism from within.

    Or at the very least - we only prosecute if someone actually complains - especially in cases like this...

    Serves her right, bloody cyclists think they own the roads.

    Get off the roads and pester pedestrians instead on your 'shared' cycle paths.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
