In my haste yesterday, I forgot to give due thanks to my lawyer, David Cooper of Cox Cooper, Hall Green. He is a very fine employment lawyer. If you were ever to need an employment lawyer, go to him. You can't go wrong.
As you may know, I was Aston Villa's official Club Historian until January, 2010. A matter occurred that resulted in me being dismissed from the post that month.
I contested my dismissal and the verdict was finally given in my favour at the Birmingham Employment Tribunal today, 25 February, 2011. Though this matter is over, I simply feel a very deep disappointment that it ever occurred and that it has been dragged through 12 months of unnecessary upset.
It was, however, a triumph for justice and commonsense.
