The employment tribunal which today dismissed John McCririck's claim of age discrimination against Channel 4 has published its judgment in full.
It says the racing pundit's persona and opinions were out of keeping with the new programme:
Mr McCririck was dismissed because of his persona...his style of dress, attitudes, opinions and tic tac gestures were not in keeping with the new aims and his opinions seen as arrogant and confrontational.
