Bus driver suspended for refusing to drive bus with rainbow number

Damien Gayle – The Guardian Aug 14, 2019

A bus driver in Norwich has been suspended after refusing to drive a bus decorated with a rainbow-coloured number in celebration of gay pride.

Passengers were left waiting after the driver allegedly told them they had to wait for him to swap buses because “this bus promotes homosexuality and I refuse to drive it”, according to a passenger.

The driver has been suspended from work while he is investigated, the company involved said.

According to Rebecca Sears, 19, a college student, the incident occurred at Norwich bus station last week. The city had recently celebrated a pride event and Konectbus buses in the city were displaying their numbers in rainbow colours.

Alongside a picture of the driver, she wrote on Twitter: “Today I was waiting for the 501 bus to Thickthorn and we were told by the driver we had to wait for him to swap buses as ‘this bus promotes homosexuality and I refuse to drive it’ due to the multicoloured ‘501’ sign.”

She wrote: “Norwich doesn’t appreciate homophobia,” adding: “I’m aware everyone is entitled to their own views. However, if you can’t do your job properly because of your bigotry, maybe you need [to] rethink your choices.”

Sears said she complained to staff at the terminus, who told her they were aware of what had happened.

Go East Anglia, Konectbus’s parent company, said on Wednesday: “Go East Anglia prides itself on values that support diversity and inclusion and has been a champion of Norwich Pride since 2017. We particularly want all customers of whatever background or sexual orientation to feel comfortable on our services.

“As a company we do not condone any behaviour from our drivers that does not support this view. The driver involved in this incident has been suspended and a full investigation is under way.”

  1. I still remember Dave Allen joke about homosexuality ?? We laughed then, today it’s reality ??

  2. Why all this false “pride” in having a mental illness? SHAME would be a more appropriate word for this government-inspired lunacy.

    If masturbating in a man’s anus was to become “normal”, the Human Race would become extinct, which seems to be what certain (((people))) want.

  3. Over 110 years ago in their Protocols of Zion Jews documented their plan to include sexual perversion, fagly promotions, in their devilish war against Christianity. This article is more evidence showing this POZ plan has been executed –


  4. I’d go further. I believe that vaccines are loaded with a virus that affects how children’s sexuality develops. I have seen this but don’t want to go into details for personal reasons. I would say a % of vaccines are loaded.

  5. When I worked on cruise ships we had an occasional ‘Naturalist week’ and we were given the CHOICE of whether we wanted to work that week despite have fixed contracts if we opted out we got a FREE hotel in our own port and rejoined after!! These days the world is being pushed by the REAL NAZI’s the CABALISTS that want to wipe out the White race time to stand OUR GROUND as We will go NOWHERE for a SPIV!

  6. signs of a decaying society, pandering to the mentally sick , destroying family values,

  7. To add to Carl Jones’ comment about vaccines, I’ve studied the leaflets relating to a range of pharmaceutical “medicines” given to heart patients, and EVERY ONE lists “sexual difficulties” or “erectile dysfunction” among the stated “side-effects”.

    Heart patients probably don’t have an active sex life due to their illness, but these “side” effects amount to chemical castration, and I wouldn’t be surprised to find “treatments” for less serious conditions contain the same ingredients that are known to have this effect.

    Homosexuality, gender confusion, “feminism”, loaded vaccines and chemical castration are all designed to reduce White reproduction.

  8. Why does the bus have to have rainbow numbers? When is heterosexual pride month? I really want a straight pride parade. And a flag that I can fly outside my home so everyone knows I’m proud to be straight. I’ve got my parade chant all ready: I’m white, cis-gendered, straight! Don’t discriminate! There’s no room for hate! Straight is really great!!
