I’m not claiming to be Mystic Meg, but I knew I would be spot on with my prediction when the Supreme Court deemed employment tribunal fees to be illegal in 2017. I said there would be a flood of claims against businesses, and I have been proven 100 percent correct!
In her maiden speech as a member of the new Independent Grouping in parliament, the extremely impressive former Tory MP, Heidi Allen, nailed it for me when she said:
I’ve been keeping a close eye on how our automotive sector is doing, because anyone with an understanding of business and the economy would appreciate how important the industry is to Britain.
I’m supposed to say I’m disappointed that the Supreme Court has ruled against Pimlico Plumbers, by ruling that plumber, Gary Smith, was a worker, rather than the self-employed contractor we all knew he was when he was carrying out work for my company.
The workplace is meant to be a place where people learn, a pathway to bettering themselves you could say; So someone please tell me why companies have the audacity to exploit our young people with ‘unpaid shifts’.
Yesterday Theresa May once again proved it is she, not various members of her cabinet, who needs to be in another job.
The Autumn Budget is looming and I can tell you, there’s one thing for sure that I hope to see included, and that’s a boost for apprenticeships!
Settling on a ‘no deal’ future as the UK’s relationship with the European Union is completely unthinkable, and there is no way in hell that such an arrangement can ever be allowed to happen.
I am shaking with rage I’m so angry about today’s Supreme Court ruling that says that charging people to bring employment tribunal cases against employers is illegal.
