A senior Northern Ireland civil servant was paid £10,000 in compensation because he was offended at having to walk past portraits of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, it has emerged.

His complaints led to the portraits being removed at his request, and replaced by a picture of the Queen meeting Martin McGuinness, the former deputy first minister of Northern Ireland and ex-IRA leader.

Lee Hegarty, who is currently in charge of the Northern Irish Parades Commission, claimed that under human rights laws it was unfair to him to have to work in a place where he was offended by such portraits.

Really. Then why the feck did the snowflake join the civil service ? OK. Well I demand compensation for being hung out to dry, trying to help with the housing shortage.... But wait... it was a Baroness wot dunnit to the spineless twat..... so that doesn't count & I don't exist... All under the carpet now eh..?!

If they're that bothered by the Queen, why are they working for HM Government? Obviously not offended of the 10000 portraits of her on the banknotes. Good for him. I would have just vomited at walking past pics of that freeloading old lizard.. Hahahahaha madness!! Only in Northern Ireland - It's 'another planet'.

Civil servant 'offended' at walking past portrait of Queen paid £10,000 in compensationOfficial reportedly claimed paintings contravened his human rights Do you want a list of what I'm offended by? But she prefers 10,000 mini portraits instead! This is a joke right? If some pompous flunkey feels offended tell them to go and work somewhere else. How is it cases like this get so far? Anyone with a modicum of common sense would surely dismiss this as nonsense.

That is an expensive photograph and they paid a guy that did not even click it. Rather pathetic really. What is the world coming to money hungry idiots in power. Disgraceful. That could have paid for the 856th servant to muck out the corgi litter tray for four months he didn’t have to.... he could of just fucked right off.

It sounds like Hegarty had been hanging out of the back of Theresa Villiers to me 🥴 it’s the only way it makes sense ☝️ follow the money what a bloody square! She’s your monarch, show some respect Time to give up. If we really are pandering to these loons, then there really is no point any more. Just hand everything over to the EU to control and call it a day.

Leaks, plots and death threats: the unhappy lot of UK civil servantsToxic attacks on civil servants are a sad reflection of our febrile, Brexit-poisoned times 💵 I think too many Civil Servants took Yes, Minister as an instruction manual rather than a comedy. Their jobs are to quietly get things done, not intervene according to their political preference. As the Bible says.......Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. The UK civil servants needs to be honest about some of the extremely dangerous seeds they have sown....!

I wonder is he/ she offended of the Queen's head on the bank notes they are paid. This will be taxpayers money then.

Absolutely disgusted by this. If he was offended by a portrait of the Queen then how can he be a civil servant. Such is Northern Irish politics. I am offended by this do I qualify for £10k? So why work for HM Government then? We can get compo for being offended now? Brilliant. That’s just complete nonsense and quite embarrassing to read actually.

What does he use for money We will now wait for complaints from his subordinates about bullying and intolerance. Wow. Hard work, if you can get it. Hah hah. Of course, there's a lot of history there, more than I can begin to understand or comprehend.
