Barrister's foul tirade at North Cottesloe Primary School A Perth lawyer who made disparaging remarks at a primary school coach outlet sale xmas quiz night says he's a community minded person who would never purposely offend anyone. Simon Watters is under fire from North Cottesloe Primary School and the WA Law Society after his offensive comments at the event on Friday night were made public. School principal Wayne Press said Watters would not be invited back while the Law Society said he could be in breach of the code of conduct for lawyers. Local website The Starfishrevealed the barrister shocked quiz night attendees with "a relentless bombardment of sexist, racist, homophobic and xenophobic utterances". Mr Watters used offensive terms such as 'faggots' and 'frogs, wogs and Nazis' while he MC'd the event. He also said only "young" and "good looking women with C and D cups" should bring their table's quiz answers to the front of the room, and mocked the appearances of billionaire Gina Rinehart, former WA premier Carmen Lawrence and singer Alison Moyet. Law Society of WA president Konradde Kerloy said Mr Watters' comments would be condemned if found to be made. "It is not appropriate in any situation to make racist or homophobic comments, especially at a primary school quiz night," he said. Mr Watters said it wasupsetting that people on one table didn't see the humour as it was intended. "No comments were made to offend anyone," Mr Watters said. "In fact, much of the humour was directed at myself and friends in the audience. "The next day, so many people rang me to say that they had not laughed so much for a long time." One coach outlet purses bags attendee Fairfax Media spoke to said Mr Watters was hillarious and only a small number of attendees had found him offensive. "I'm still laughing about his jokes today," the parent said on Monday. "It seems to be a bit of a beat up really." Mr Watters said he was bewildered by the focus on his comments, which he thought were "quite tame" compared to many stand up comedy acts. He said he did his best to extract as much money as possible from the audience during the event, which raised about $50,000 for the school and was attended by about 260 people. P president Celia Patrick coach outlet albertville mn said Mr Watters had MC'd the event two years prior and was a popular choice for quizmaster, and had apologised to those he may have offended. But Mr Kerloy said his actions could place Mr Watters in breach of the Legal Profession Conduct Rules. "That is section 6.2 that says that a practitioner coach outlet locations aurora must not engage in conduct, in the course of providing legal services or otherwise, that demonstrates that the practitioner is not a fit and proper person to practice law; or may be prejudicial to, or diminish public confidence in, the administration of justice or may bring the profession into disrepute." He said it would be up to the Legal Practice Board to act on any official complaints on the matter. Mr Press, the North Cottesloe Primary School principal, didn't escape the foul mouthed lawyer either. "Don't worry about the result, the prizes are absolute crap, it doesn't matter. If we get enough money, we'll get a decent principal," the MC is reported to have said. Many guests booed while others cheered as Mr Watters wrapped up the evening's proceedings. While the barrister indicated he would be back to MC at a future quiz night, a school representative has said he was not welcome to return. Mr Press said Mr Watters had made several deeply offensive and hurtful remarks.
"I would like to state clearly that these offensive comments in no way reflect the values of our school," Mr Press said in a statement. He said Mr Watters was not a member of the school's community and had been invited by the P Press also said he would work with the school board and the P to develop stronger protocols for the hosting, compering and running of future events. The P Celia Patrick said in a statement that the group had "only received positive accolades for an enjoyable evening" in regard to the event.
