Theresa May claimed today her government will build a “fairer” Britain, in which “opportunities are shared more equally” and to create a country that “works for everyone”.
It will be interesting to see how May manages to do all that, while at the same time keeping her wealthy backers happy.
Here’s a list of extremely wealthy donors who have been dishing out tens of thousands to Theresa May over the last couple of months only:
Atul Pathak – millionaire Macdonalds franchisee
James Lupton – millionaire investment banker
Mark Neale – millionaire retail chain owner
Ravinder Singh Gidar – millionaire owner of chain of private care homes
Daniel Green – millionaire payday loan entrepeneur
Michael Davis – millionaire mining executive
Abel G Halpern – millionaire investment banker
Nicholas Campsie – millionaire investment banker
Ian Taylor – millionaire oil executive
Alexia Forman – millionaire wife of banking executive
Michael Spencer – millionaire city broker
Leopold Noe – millionaire property developer
I smell the sickly whiff of empty rhetoric …
PS Perhaps her wealthy friends like the fact May consistently voted against Labour’s introduction of the minimum wage for hard-working British people?
