Employment tribunals ‘bad for business’, claim crooked bosses

Fagin employment tribunals OTP
John Shafthauer

There is a repressed minority of hard-working people in the UK. And that minority is crooked business owners. The people who are always scraping by – trying to make that extra million – despite the forces of health and safety conspiring against them.

Although things improved for these poor arseholes when the Tories got back into power, it’s looking like things could now go backwards; as employees will no longer be charged for trying to seek justice. A move which could see many employees actually seeking justice.


We caught up with the Tories’ Employer of the Year 2016 – a gentleman called Fagin – to find out more:

I employ over 12,000 workers, my dear. Most of whom struggled to get jobs anywhere else. Primarily because they’re children. Although some of them are also quite sick.

What’s going to happen to me when these little blighters can take me to court, though? They’re gonna be accusing me of all sorts. And some of it might not even be true!


The Daily Mail has sensibly warned us what could happen if we give employees rights. Because if there’s one group of people in the UK that should not be trusted, it’s the sneaky British worker. A group of people so vile and reprehensible that they lower themselves to working in sub-standard conditions with hardly any need for intimidation at all:

Goliath versus David

It’s at times like these we should remember the tale of Goliath. An entrepreneur from Biblical times who provided work opportunities for his many slaves. An entrepreneur who was ultimately slain by a crafty young fellow called Dave who took justice into his own hands and slew Goliath with rocks.

Is this the sort of ‘justice’ we want in the UK?

A world in which bosses fear reprisal for treating their employees like the sub-human burden-donkeys they are?

Oh wait – you do want that?

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
