This comment by Deputy Labour chief Harriet Harman is shocking and a good example of the core beliefs of the political Left:
"Sir Fred Goodwin should not count on being 650,000 pounds a year better off, because that's not going to happen," Harman told BBC's Andrew Marr show.
"The prime minister has said that it is not acceptable, and therefore it will not be accepted," she added.
"It may be enforceable in a court of law, this contract, but it is not enforceable in the court of public opinion. And that is where the government steps in."
So the government should be accountable to public opinion and not to the law or to property rights which lie at the bedrock of democracy?? This is rule by Jacobite mob.
