JackBoots Tactics

Alliance Boots, the Switzerland-based parent company of one-time British institution Boots the Chemist, has expressed fears that the Monaco-dwelling billionaire Boots boss Stefano Pessina was quoted “out of context” when he quite unequivocally stated that it would be a “catastrophe” if Labour were to win the general election and that jobs and pay would be put at risk if Ed Miliband was prime minister. I don’t question their sincerity for even one moment.

Of course, the deployment of such a scare-mongering sound-bite is precisely what one would expect from a nefarious, grasping, tax-avoiding and wilfully economy-damaging multinational swindler…

I do hope that my words on this aren’t taken out of context.

About Fles

Early middle-aged (oh yes I am!), no longer long-haired but still speccy and decidedly still an increasingly opinionated git. I’m basically a believer in individualism, that everybody has their own perspective and inner-beauty. I try to find humour in every situation. I enjoy reading and writing poetry.
