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.
So Labour's solution to the economy is to micromanage businesses by judging whether they have the "wrong values"?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.
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.
