    and the one reflects on the mental distress on those poor clydeside firefighters who had to attend a Pride event, it’s obvious the filthy fag had it easy!

    That was sarcasm by the way; obviously this fire service only paid lip service to diversity, and they’ll probably fight to the alst tax payers’ pound

  2. Poor bloke. Hope they’re happy now, the bigots in his station.

  3. Hmm. No smoke without fire.

  4. Shocked to the core! We pay our taxes to a fire service that does this? I hope when the ‘legal reasons’ for not naming suspects or the station involved, do come out, that this force gets the full justice of the law that it deserves. Had the fire fighter been black or asian, i bet it would be all over the papers and the tv. But once again, because it has the word gay, if probebly won’t even get a mention! You think we live in an age of equality!? This proves once again….we don’t!

    Absolutely appalling! What’s the betting that the surviving partner will get nowhere with this one?

  6. Of course on the surface this seems very cut and dry but as is usually the case there’s more to this than meets the eye. I suggest everyone keeps schtum until the facts come out and the case is heard. Further comments like some of those already posted only succeed in showing ignorance. How can you possibly infer judgement on this fire service when you know nothing about it, just what the press reports?!!
