Hail To The All Knowing Ed Miliband.

Oh joy, Labour have a new policy:
The Labour leader will criticise companies with the “wrong values” who do not create jobs, invest in companies or train their staff.
Mr Miliband will tell the party’s annual conference that the days when all businesses are taxed and regulated equally should be over. Instead, firms will be judged according to how they make their money.
So Labour's solution to the economy is to micromanage businesses by judging whether they have the "wrong values"?

Equality before the law is one of the things that enabled England to become a financial and commercial centre centuries ago- as traders knew that if they had a legal dispute in England they would be protected by a legal system where the rule of law was what mattered- not if you were favoured by the powers that be.

This is a valuable asset to this country and to throw it away in favour of special rules for different businesses depending upon whether ministers (with no obvious qualifications for judging the worthiness of businesses) is insane.

Even now, they have no alternative to "the state must do more".

Out for a generation, I'd say.

There are actually people who are going to vote for this clown, Ross.

Pat said...

Does the Labour Party have the right values? Does it create jobs? and does it meaningfully train its employees?

A K Haart said...

"Insane" is the right word.

Ross said...

Yaffle- a credible leader might be able to make an impact before then. Though Labour hate credible leaders.

Pat- the rules don't apply to them

Lets hope any businesses will never be bothered with this nonsense. Eddie ia making it happen.

If any should ever be so pestered I suggest they write back to point out that socialism has ruined and laid waste to entire nations and societies, promoted (and still promotes)mass imprisionment and mass torture and has murdered somewhere between 150 and 200 million people in the last 100 years.
