John McCririck, one time racing pundit and lifelong bigot, has left court today after losing his age discrimination case still unsure why he was fired.
Renowned for his 16th century view of women, McCririck was fired from his position on Chanel 4 Racing, where he was often partnered by Tanya Stevenson, or as he used to call her, ‘the female’.
“If they didn’t fire me because of my age, then I don’t know why they let me go” McCririck told reporters outside the court.
“There was a slight suggestion of sexism, but how can that be true? I love the women. As I have said before, I am sadly someone who loves the female front structure. If anything, they should be grateful I appreciate them.”
“Why wouldn’t you want me on television perving over and demeaning women at that same time? I have never had complaints from my wife, ‘The Booby’.”
McCririck has vowed to continue his fight for ‘the truth’. Having discounted his own sexism, bigotry and misogyny and the court ruling out age discrimination, McCririck’s search may be a long one.
He told us: “I am now going to take a bit of time out to figure out what else it might have been. I promise to have a long, hard look in the mirror”. The search may not take as long as first thought.
