Just spotted it in the In The News section, which I've had hidden for ages since all the BNP threads, but that's by-the-by...

OMFG...

omg Barleycup, I'd forgotten all about that. Can you still get it?

Munich Re are saying that the people responsible left the company before before the facts were uncovered.

So those anonymous men who were in charge of this episode slip away unpunished, free to arrange another prostitution session at another company.

Can I be a pain and request langoustine instead of oysters?

MollysChamber · 20/05/2011 17:24

Back to the point -

Major cop-out with the distinct whiff of bullshit whitewash about it as far as I can tell.

Blinis? Yum! There is nothing quite like champers (nothing quite like the hangover either but there you go!).

I knew the financial sector was misogynistic but I am still really shocked by this. Can't think of anything more useful to say really. It's just shit Sad.

Words don't cover how I feel about this Angry

I can guarantee that the reaction amongst the general workers in some of these companies will have been laughter, much of it impressed laughter.

With the women all sitting there looking at their screens thinking FFS!!!! Or joining in with the lads, obv.

This kind of shit makes me depressed. (Not the é or the daiquiris)

I'm not all that surprised. I've worked for companies that have organised customers' nights out in London and the person hosting the night out is given a few thousand quid float so that 'everyone has a good time'... usually at the lap-dancing or strip clubs. Scaling it up to including prostitutes is more normal overseas. I've been to a few Full Monty style ladies' nights in my time so I went along to one of these evenings once (not an orgy, just the lapdancing!) It was actually very funny. Unlike the giggly women at the evenings I've been to who tend to whoop and holler in between smearing some poor bloke with baby-oil, the men were all rather studying their pints or focusing on some point near their shoes. Didn't seem to be enjoying it at all from what I could see.

Anyway, didn't it all happen in 2007? Maybe things have moved on?

i saw this story yesterday

made me want to hurl

MoChan · 20/05/2011 19:32

I bet they are not the only company to have done stuff like this.

Sickening, anyway. This kind of thing makes me despair.

steamedtreaclesponge · 20/05/2011 19:34

no, bindhis are those things you stick on your forehead

can't see that working with blinis, somehow Grin

MoChan · 20/05/2011 19:48

Okra is called bindi though. Well, you get an okra dish if you order bindi bahji from my local takeaway. My actual knowledge of any language other than English, French and Latin is scant.

MmeLindor. · 20/05/2011 20:13

Can anyone confirm if it was HMI?

I feel sick.

My BIL works for them.

MmeLindor. · 20/05/2011 20:14

oh, sorry. You are all on champagne and blinis.

I only have German wine to offer, but it is from an orgy free winery. I think.

MollysChamber · 20/05/2011 20:15
MmeLindor. · 20/05/2011 20:16

Shit. Son has a HMI football. Better bin that then.

Fuck.

Trying to remember if BIL was in Hungary in past couple of years.

MollysChamber · 20/05/2011 20:16

Is it liebfraumilch?
