Stop Corporate Killers!

Full marks to John McDonnell for blowing the whistle on attempts to pull punches in the fight to firm up the Government’s appallingly weak corporate manslaughter bill.

He reports that he heard yesterday that the line coming from some senior members of the Trade Union Group of MPs in Parliament is that some want to draft amendments but not push them to the vote in Parliament.

That won’t do. There is no point having trade unionists in Parliament if they don’t fight for trade union policies. All union linked MPs should be following the example of Katy Clark MP and working with Families Against Corporate Killers, who are protesting at the Commons today.
