Diageo profits strengthen case against job cuts - Carmichael
Commenting on Diageo’s announcement of a £2bn profit, Liberal Democrat Shadow Scotland Secretary, Alistair Carmichael said:
“This news will be hard to take for the workers whose jobs are hanging in the balance."
“It is difficult to see why a business making profits in the billions considers itself so hard-pressed that it has to lay off workers who have shown years of loyalty.
“This news only strengthens the case for Diageo to think again before it axes jobs at its historic Kilmarnock site. It is the dedication of Diageo’s employees that have allowed it to become so profitable - sacking them now would be an unforgivable way to reward them.”
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
