When will these NuLabour bastards learn that private means private? And a private company can pay its outgoing boss precisely what it wants to.
Labour leadership contender Michael Meacher has called on BP shareholders to try to block a multi-million pound payoff for departing boss Lord Browne.
Mr Meacher, a former government minister, estimates the BP boss could get up to £72m when he leaves in July, although it is likely to be less.
And precisely what fucking business is it of yours, Meacher, you cunt?
"I call on BP shareholders to reject this grotesque pay-off," said Mr Meacher.
Well, maybe they will and maybe they won't: whatever they do, the renumeration for those working in private companies is a private matter for the company and its shareholders: the government should not be getting involved at any level.
"We need to end the situation where city bosses set each other's rewards.
"The remuneration committees that decide on chief executive pay should include representatives from the shop floor, to inject a sense of reality."
Erm: most people working at BP get significant amounts of shares (I know several people who work for the comapany. One poor bastard's stuck in Angola for three years) so I think that you might find that there are significant number of people on "the shop floor" voting on this (if they can be arsed).
As for this bit:
We need to end the situation where city bosses set each other's rewards.
How about we amend that a wee bit, eh?
We need to end the situation where civil servants set each other's rewards.
We need to end the situation where MPs vote on their own rewards.
Go fuck yourself, Meacher, you hypocritical twat-monkey. Why don't you go and redecorate one of your houses.
With the aid of your brains and a shotgun.
