the British Chamber of Commerce are all cockweasels

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A perfect model of corporate sociopathy, laid out by some bloke called Denis McShane, who happens to be a Labour MP. He describes how the BCC publically scorns such "burdens" to businesses as asbestos legislation, data protection laws, regulations to limit exposure to vibrations and noise that produce crippling injuries, the anti-smoking laws and even disability discrimination, building fire regulations and legislation limiting pollution. The BCC's fanatical promotion of the corporate ideology that seeks to externalise all risk to the public sphere and internalise profits is the precise definition of corporate sociopathy. It is the conviction of the exceptionalist: That all profits should accrue to you and all costs are Somebody Else's Problem. Their lobbying activities needs to be exposed for the threat to society that they are.
