  • George Conisbee, 20, resigned from his position as a waiter at the Fritton Arms hotel near Lowestoft, Suffolk, after he was shouted at in front of customers for wearing an un-ironed shirt.
  • The judge hinted that vegans could, however, qualify for the legal protection as there was “a clear cogency and cohesion in vegan belief” as they all shun meat, fish and dairy products because they believe it is “contrary to a civilised society and against climate control”.
  • Mr Conisbee worked for four months at the 16th century hotel on the 5,000-acre estate of Hugh Crossley, the fourth Baron Somerleyton.
