Telegraph | News | Muslim salesman 'hurt' by wine prizes

British-born Mr Khan, who works for Direct Line Insurance, is seeking damages for "hurt feelings" under the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003. (He) claimed that the bottles of wine on offer put him at a disadvantage because, as a Muslim, he could not drink alcohol and was therefore unable to claim the prizes.

Hurt feelings! How on earth can a telephone insurance salesman claim to have "feelings" that might be hurt? "Quote me bloody happy", or what ever, you would need more than a warm bottle of Tesco Pinot Grigio to make me feel "happy" about the scum.


Considering the President of the United States of America toasts with 7UP while the rest of the room are using champers, I don't think this upitty fellow has a leg to stand on. But what should that matter in this try it on society?

If wine upsets him so much, why doesn't he emigrate to a country that doesn't allow wine. Chances are his job will be moved there soon anyway.


Next thing you know we'll have to abolish pub quizes because the prize of 'a fee round' upsets Muslims.
