"It's one rule for them and one rule for us workers, innit?"

“It’s one rule for them and one rule for us workers, innit?”

Denis Dobby, 37, from Hull, failed to convince an industrial tribunal that he had been unfairly dismissed.

Mr Dobby had been employed as a supplies assistant at his local government office for five years. However, due to incompetent supervision and inadequate checks, he often didn’t turn up for work and, according to the tribunal, he did “bugger all” when he was there.

In his defence, Mr Dobby claimed he was given time off by a series of supervisors to go to his Grandmother’s funeral. According to the tribunal, he had attended his Grandmother’s funeral 72 times.

In his defence, Mr Dobby claimed his two Grandfathers were serial bigamists but failed to produce any evidence to that effect. His argument that “records weren’t so good during the war” was not accepted.

Mr Dobby also claimed he “worked his butt off” when he was in the office. However, he was only able to produce one requisition chitty from the supplies department for a task Mr Dobby had completed and that was four-and-a-half years ago.

He blamed the office’s “inadequate and chaotic” filing system but the tribunal was also shown thousands of chits for jobs completed by other members of Mr Dobby’s department.

Further to his defence, Mr Dobby only managed to produce one witness from the entire council workforce who claimed to have seen him “about his business”, and she was Mr Dobby’s cousin who only started the week before Mr Dobby was fired.

Mr Dobby denied claims of nepotism.

As he left the tribunal, Mr Dobby said: “It’s one law for them and one law for us workers, innit!”
