Boardroom antics


Recent behaviour has raised an eyebrow or two in TS Towers, as left-wing MPs have extolled the virtues of British boardrooms, holding them up as an example of good governance that Tony Blair should follow.

Nine MPs have signed a Commons motion arguing that ‘modest changes are required’ to enable the cabinet to operate on the basis of the Combined Code of Corporate Governance 2003 and the Companies Act 1985.

TS wonders what the shareholders would say about this…but hold on isn’t that all of us?…yes it is and what happened to the dividends?
