(Facepalm) Daily Telegraph: tax dodging Monaco Tory billionaire hates Labour

As Tom Pride points out, it’s hardly surprising that a tax-dodging, multi-millionaire like Pessina hates Labour. Nevertheless, it does show alarm on the part of the Tory faithful, as New Labour with its ‘Tory-lite’ policies was successful in winning donors away from the Conservatives. The situation has moved the other way since then, with the multi-millionaire privatisers going back to either the Tories or UKIP. Nevertheless, this article shows that the fear is still there.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Telegraph!)

I’m afraid the woeful state of British journalism is being more than adequately illustrated in the lead-up to the general election.

For example, just today, the Daily Telegraph has an extraordinary story about how Boots boss Stefano Pessina thinks it would be a “catastrophe” if Ed Miliband wins the next election:

Boots boss: Ed Miliband would be a ‘catastrophe’ for Britain

Oh, come on now Telegraph.

Considering Pessina is a Monaco-resident, tax-dodging, billionaire, Tory-supporting friend of David Cameron – whose firm is benefiting from the present government’s privatisation of the NHS – that’s not very surprising now, is it?

Talk about journalists reporting Dog Bites Man.

Take a bow Telegraph hacks Tim Ross and Graham Ruddick.
