this man showed compassion to a defenceless animal in danger......he should be commended for his act of kindness not ridiculed. there is not enough compassion in the world today. allow this man back to do his job.
No Doubt I'll sign: anything Pro-Animal Rights, or Anti Corporate greed. I try to support...
Southern Rail should feel black burning shame for the way they have treated Tom and should lift the suspension and apologise immediately.
the pc brigade have stuck their noses in yet again, that's why I hate the country of my birth because of useless jobsworths who make ordinary peoples lives a misery for their own gain. This guy should be made a saint not a sinner.
A very good Humanitarian Act!
Signed - good luck Tom - you have many animal lovers supporting you now.
What other choice did Tom have?
Was anyone injured because Tom stopped to help a defenceless animal-NO, so health & safety can get stuffed and Tom should be back at his job with no suspension. Southern Rail, you suck!
This guy needs a medal not suspension !! It wld seem u hv support from all animal lovers except British rail .. msg to the bosses if that was ur much loved pet wld u not want someone to put themselves out and prob risk his life to save ur pet? Or wld u just rather it die slowly alone in pain ... think about it show u hv a heart yes he prob broke all the safety rules in the book .. but no one got hurt did they ! I'm sure this lil dog appreciates being rescued . X
Tom's employer could equally have been sued for negligence had a staff member not acted on the sitiation he found himself placed in. We are all animals and this is a basic animal instinct to save another's life. Had it been a child he saved, he would be hailed as a hero, and the rail company would be glowing in the positive publicity gained - as they could from this incident. Instead, it's yet another excuse to lose staff and increase profits. Pathetic excuse for a business.
