    Government back-tracks on worker representation on boards.

    Government retreats from promises over worker representation on boards

    Instead of carrying out any such radical moves the “Name and shame” policy has been selected as the tool of choice in the Government’s attempts to tackle corporate excess.

    The package of measures falls short of Prime Minister Theresa May’s pledge, during her leadership campaign, “to have not just consumers represented on boards, but workers as well”.

    I suppose very few of us will actually be surprised about this move as Theresa May is just about as dishonest as any former Prime Minister has ever been.

    When I first read that she was planning to allow workers onto company boards, I immediately thought, "aye, that'll be right", and now my thoughts have been proven to be right.

    What I wonder about is why she says things like this in the first place as she knows fine well that she is going to have to back down on moves like this just a few days later.

    Yeah, I knew too that May would never give us such freedom with fat-cat's wages.

    If she did, she -and the Tories - would have lost a lot of support they get from big business.

    The word that is used in politics that fits her well is "disingenuous".

    "Disingenuous" is far too polite a description of this harpy, as she is quite simply a LIAR.

    One good thing that is happening just now is that a large number of Tory members are getting together to oust her very soon.

    Probably the time will be after she has taken the blame for everything that has gone wrong in the Brexit negotiations.

    You cannot "name and shame" monsters like this as they will find just this sanction mildly amusing.

    The only way to get any control over fat-cat wages is to kick out the useless Tories and put Labour back in.

    Cannot disagree about that Angie.

    The offer to put workers on these boards was always a thing that she could not deliver. Also, the fact that she promised the shareholders a say in the fat-cat salaries was as untrue as anything else she has tried.

    Why am I not surprised? May's husband is highly entangled in the tax haven ripoff, and I'm sure they wouldn't want worker oversight into G4S and his other companies, would they?

    I believe he has a big handful of CAPITA also.

    This information is not surprising one bit.

    Many Tories have made big money from the privateers that they have put in place after public services have been privatised.
