Husband fined in Scotland for calling his wife a 'greedy little Jewish princess'

    A man from Scotland was fined £1,000 on Wednesday for calling his wife a “greedy little Jewish princess” in a deluded drunk-dial outburst on Christmas Eve last year.

    Mark Symington, an investment broker, told his wife: “You’re just a silly little gold-digger [with] a few fur coats,” according to a report in the Daily Mail.

    The angry 49 year old from Shieldaig in northern Scotland also told Sarah Symington: “I’ll f****** gas you. I’m Adolf”.

    The 20-phone call tirade lasted from December 24 until the 27, when Mr Symington demanded a call back: “I am going to leave messages till you ring back. You think you are clever? Stupid little international housewife.”

    Mr Symington claims that his frustrated and racially aggravated outburst to her home in Crieff, Perthshire, came after he had not seen his two children for three years.

    The couple separated in 2008.

    Sheriff Lindsay Foulis, who judged the Scottish case, said: “This course of conduct was unpleasant in the extreme. He has a background in investment and is not an immature teenager. [This] can only be described as an unpleasant tired against an estranged spouse”.

    Mr Symington was fined at Perth Sheriff Court last Wednesday for the calls that were aggravated by religious prejudice.
