Good riddance

The EMA has sacked Alasdair Thompson over his sexist comments about the gender pay gap being due to menstruation. Note: not "negotiated an exit", but sacked. So he leaves in ignominy, with a black mark on his record.

Good fucking riddance. Hopefully this will lead to the EMA joining the rest of us in the 21st century.

Meanwhile, its also an example that their whining about the Employment Relations Act making it hard to fire people for gross misbehaviour is baseless. They've just shown that it can be done; all you have to do is follow the proper process.
