Is this true? Pat Leahy writing in the IT this last weekend about Boris Johnson and saying: Put another way, do we stick with the backstop no matter what the cost? The choice then was Yes, we take that risk, we hold our nerve, because the UK will not crash out. It proved right: in […]A

This story of workplace relations is unfortunately all too believable? A receptionist has been awarded ?51,168 by the Labour Court as compensation for discrimination over how she was treated when she returned to work from maternity leave.
