Just received a tip from someone telling me that Orange have suspended a “community affairs” employee, pending investigation, after writing an article for Conservative Home.
In the blog he lays out some modern-day “definitions”. These include:
Islamophobic as: “Anyone who objects to having their transport blown up on the way to work.”
Palestinians as: “Archetype ‘victims’ no matter how many teenagers they murder in bars and fast food outlets. Never responsible for anything they do â€“ or done in their name – because of ‘root causes’ or â€˜legitimate grievancesâ€™.”
A representative from Orange said: “We have received a number of complaints regarding the content of an article written by an Orange employee and published on an independent website which has offended some of our customers.
“We take the opinions of our customers very seriously and believe that this matter warrants further investigation. We have therefore suspended an employee while this investigation takes place.”
Interview update: I debated with Samuel from ConservativeHome and Asghar from MPAC on BBC Asian Network. [ffwd by 1hr]
