UK: Postmen go on strike in support of Muslim worker who was offended by being asked: "Do you like women?"

(Liverpool)  So last week a female manager at the Royal Mail Bootle and Seaforth Delivery office asked a male member of staff if he liked women. As he was a Muslim he took offence and played the race card and as Liverpool is a hotbed for socialism 100s of staff walked out on strike in support of his hurt feelings.

Workers picketing outside the Bootle office repeatedly told the local paper they had a "zero tolerance" stance to racism. A spokesman for the Communication Workers Union said: "We are representing our member as we do in any situation like this." Royal Mail bosses have slammed the strike, describing it as "unballoted."
