News from our new home of East London:
A Christian NHS (National Health Service) worker has been disciplined for ‘bullying’ a Muslim colleague by praying with her.
Victoria Wasteney, an occupational therapist, was also condemned for inviting the woman to a sports day at her church.
And a hearing found her guilty of a further count of misconduct: lending the colleague a book about a Muslim woman who converts to Christianity.
The 37-year-old, who was suspended for nine months, has now been banned from discussing her faith at work and given a formal warning by East London NHS Foundation Trust that will remain on her record for a year.
Michelle and I look forward to becoming bullies of East London and beyond. Although we don’t expect to be punished by our employer for doing it.
