Conference: Unions vs Government Round I

Looks like the Unions have hit the ground running in trying to flex their muscles at the Labour Conference. Apparently Unions bosses have been trying to get a policy commitment to reintroduce a mandatory 14 year prison sentence to the Corporate Manslaughter Bill which was first presented to Parliament in July. The Government is threatening to pull the bill completely unless the Unions back down.

Corporate Manslaughter of itself is a gross distortion of the justice system. It will basically make people guilty for the actions of others.

Will it also cover negligence of public sector /politicians and stifle the oft repeated comment

"We will learn from our mistakes"

With no one ever being held accountable
