Another Potty Government Intervention
Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA
Governments find it impossible to resist the temptation to interfere with every aspect of our lives.
Time and time again they are shown to do more harm than good.
But that doesn’t stop them.
The latest lunacy is a proposal that companies will in future be judged by sociologists on whether they have included workers’ ideas when making decisions.
Companies which do not score strongly will be banned from receiving government support. They will be outlawed. Ostracised.
Bonkers. Barking. Potty.
This is one long stride down the road towards communism.
Large companies will be good at the box ticking. There will be committees and workers sitting on advisory boards. No one with any brains will take any notice of the nonsense. But the box will be ticked.
It is small companies which will fail to satisfy the nanny state.
And so they will wither on the vine.
Here is yet more encouragement for investors to avoid small companies.
Is that really what the Government intended?
