"Whataboutism" isn't really the point here. And "naming and shaming" employers is very rarely HMRC's first resort.



I can’t see how what I said was whataboutism. I wasn’t making excuses just saying I doubt they are alone. Sadly.

The trade union movement are still an important part of working life for us all.

When Celtic were name and shamed few years ago, the Celtic fans protested against the club and demanded change.

I worked 35 years in engineering, no union to represent us. However, every pay rise, change in working conditions etc. came about only after the unions negotiated the deal for it's own members elsewhere. We did become unionized eventually and things improved even more. The point is non-unionized places benefited from the unions too but this may seem to some, that we didn't need unions, but the working man / woman certainly did no matter where they worked.

said a pensioner socialist, UNIONS do NOTHING other than collect a fee and stand in the way of progress. Ask yourself, why is UNISON based in BRAND NEW offices near Euston, for the "good of the workers", why did Scargill kill the mining industry, Bob Crow ruined the Railways... the list is endless (comrade)


it was that cow thatcher that killed off the mining industry

Didn't some clubs get named earlier in the year for the same thing?

I don`t seem to recall you posting such strong comments when St Helens were outed for the exact same thing around 3 or 4 months ago?
