Re: corporate conscience

"'Section 172 of the 2006 Companies Act (below) specifically says company Directors must consider the interests of employees, suppliers, community, environment etc, and not just in a short term context either.'"

I think this Act was a result of Tony Bliar's Stakeholder blether before he was elected and was passed so that if up against the wall as a non-practising socialist he could point to the act to show that he was.

I doubt if the act was ever intended to be enforced.
