    Anyone else experienced this ? I was consistently getting praised for my work and on the verge of a promotion and had always got along well in a professional sense with my boss. One day it came up in conversation I was once an active member and campaigner in a political party which my manager did not like and ever since my manager has found numerous ways to try and get rid of me. I no longer am active in any party as I don't think any currently represent my views however I have noticed also several people in a social sense are put off by the fact I was a member of a political party they disagree with.

    Well what tf did you expect? People aren't exactly going to celebrate and dance to a former BNP member.
