first_imgFriday 19 October 2018 7:58 am Share How dare MPs be such brazen hypocrites over abuse claims Such self-interested apathy would rightly never fly in the private sector, especially not in what we’re now calling the #MeToo era.But politics is a dirty game – which apparently means you can act as dirtily, sleazily, inappropriately as you want, and the colour of your rosette or your stance on Brexit will absolve you of all your sins.Of course, the Tories are hardly blameless either.On the blue side, there have been a plethora of calls for Bercow to go now – most dramatically from the chair of the Women and Equalities Committee, Maria Miller. In fact, a whole range of Conservatives have chimed in, coincidentally including many who have been gunning for Bercow for years.One does not, however, recall similar Tory unity last year, when the then defence secretary Michael Fallon resigned after a series of complaints about his improper conduct.At the time, Conservative MP Sir Roger Gale warned that the scandal over Westminster sexual abuse claims were a “witch hunt”. He does not appear to be defending hunted witches like Bercow now.And when Damian Green’s position in the cabinet was at risk following accusations of inappropriate sexual advances and pornography found on his work computer, David Davis threatened to resign as Brexit secretary in solidarity.He didn’t actually do it when Green was eventually sacked, but that’s beside the point – no similar support has been proffered in this instance.The message from both sides is clear: sexual harassment should only be taken seriously if you can score political points in the process – and if it’s your teammate in the crosshairs, defend them at all costs.After the Presidents Club debacle at the start of the year, it was asked whether the City could ever restore its reputation from revelations of such a toxic and overtly sexist culture. The fact that few are making similar arguments about parliament tells us, sadly, that the battle has already been lost.We expect no better from our elected representatives – and so no better is exactly what we’re going to get.Read more: Bercow ‘must quit’ over damning report into parliamentary bullying Inappropriate touching. Groping. Sexual slurs. whatsapp And the response from those at the top has been… well, deferential, subservient, acquiescent, and silent.If ever there were a moment when we could hope for some cross-party unity, this was it. Instead, the Cox report immediately turned into a political football in the never-ending game of Brexit.The Labour party, which has worker rights and protections woven into its very foundation, has contorted itself in knots over the report. The problem is the recommendation that the speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, stand down earlier than expected.Bercow is not specifically named, but Cox clearly considers him part of the problem, with criticism of how complaints were handled, and the damning conclusion that “the levers of change are regarded as part of the change that is needed”.That is to say nothing of the specific accusations of bullying made against Bercow himself earlier this year (which the speaker denies). These are not detailed in the Cox report, but were partly why it was commissioned in the first place – a fact that has not gone unnoticed.

Fewer than there were, but we can do betterWhen, last January, similar conduct was unveiled at the Presidents Club, a London fundraising event for businessmen, it sent shockwaves through the City, sparking calls for the capital’s business community to take a long, hard look at its sexist culture.But this week, former high court judge Dame Laura Cox released her report detailing the appalling treatment to which parliamentary staffers are subjected in Westminster, against a backdrop of “deference, subservience, acquiescence and silence”. Rachel Cunliffe Inconveniently for Labour MPs, Bercow is a major ally when it comes to challenging the government over Brexit. Crucial votes are on the horizon, and with razor-thin margins, a speaker sympathetic to the Remain cause could make all the difference.That’s why we’ve seen some truly shocking displays of hypocrisy. Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry, among others, argued that Brexit meant it wasn’t the right time to change speaker. Other Labour MPs have decided to stay deafeningly quiet.But Dame Margaret Beckett went further, admitting that “abuse is terrible… but yes if it comes to it, the constitutional future of this country… trumps bad behaviour”.In other words, I’m sorry you were the victim of bullying and harassment, but getting our way on Brexit is more important to us than ensuring you are safe at work.Imagine if a chief executive were to show such callousness. We accept that your manager bullied you, your colleagues harassed you, your professionalism was undermined, your complaints dismissed, your position compromised, your body groped… but our company’s bottom line and reputation is more important right now.

first_img Thursday 1 November 2018 8:06 am A company needs to stand for something more than making money. Sustainability matters more than profit. The mission should be a lasting contribution to society that finds a balance between all stakeholders. Those aren’t the words of a pious left-wing hand-wringer but of John McFarlane, chairman of Barclays, in an anthology of writing published this week examining the challenges facing the banking sector a decade on from the financial crisis.The anthology, produced by Labour in the City, brings together a number of influential financial voices – including Xavier Rolet, former chief executive of the London Stock Exchange; Craig Donaldson, chief executive of Metro Bank; the economist Ann Pettifor; and Simon Lewis, head of the Association for Financial Markets in Europe.While each of them offers a subtly different perspective on the cause and impact of the 2008 credit crunch, a common thread runs throughout: the financial services industry is still struggling to win back the confidence of the public, and of politicians.The demise of Northern Rock, the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the nationalisation of Lloyds and RBS may be 10 years ago, but they were such an existential shock to confidence in the sector that in the public memory they remain fresh.An enormous amount of work has since gone into reform – not least the ring-fencing system separating retail and investment banks, the creation of a comprehensive bank resolution regime for failures in the UK and Europe, higher capital ratios, and a curtailment on the degree to which banks trade on their own accounts. Tags: Bank of England Barclays Brexit Company John McFarlane Metro Bank People Tax Thomas Piketty Andrew Clark Yet the public isn’t convinced. A YouGov poll published in August found that 66 per cent of people do not trust banks to work in the best interests of society, and 72 per cent feel that they ought to have faced tougher penalties over the causes of the credit crunch.That perception gap between the Square Mile and the rest of the nation needs to be narrowed.Whether left or right, it doesn’t make intellectual or practical sense to be blindly “anti-bank” – the financial services industry contributed £27.3bn to the Treasury in taxes in 2016/17, and made a total contribution to the economy of £119bn in 2017.The industry employs 3.2 per cent of the UK workforce – it’s a cornerstone of our economy.Some, including Pettifor, argue that far more radical reforms are needed to prevent a recurrence of the 2008 crisis. Share In fact, political plurality flourishes in the Square Mile – this is, after all, a place where the working population is overwhelmingly young, multicultural, and socially liberal. Many City workers are relaxed about immigration, alarmed by the prospect of a hard Brexit, and concerned at the impact of austerity.Certain areas of Labour’s policy platform – including the nationalisation agenda and a financial transactions tax – are contentious.Others – including reconsidering the mandate of the Bank of England, the establishment of regional development banks and of a national investment bank to direct capital beyond the south east and the real estate sector – are generating a lively and constructive debate.Thomas Piketty’s 2013 book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, kickstarted a broad discussion about responsible capitalism and inequality. Adam Tooze’s “Crashed” weighed in this year by arguing that the financial crisis never ended – and that we are in an era of constant financial upheavals.The page hasn’t yet turned: there are more lessons yet to be learned from the events of 2008, in how to rebuild public confidence in finance. Global debt has risen from $142 trillion to $250 trillion over the last decade, banks continue to speculate in often opaque financial instruments, bonus pools remain a bone of contention, and a shadow banking system, outside the scope of many forms of regulation, has grown into a $160 trillion business.Above all, a lack of “closure” in resolving the debate around the credit crunch bothers many people working in financial services, both senior and junior. Nobody wants their industry to be held in low public esteem.That’s one reason why, this week, 200 workers drawn from the financial sector attended a Labour in the City discussion at the Guildhall, in the heart of the Square Mile.Chaired by Alistair Darling, who was chancellor at the time of the crisis, the event launched the anthology of “10 years on” writing and sought to continue a discussion about how banks can regain trust.It was the largest event yet organised by Labour in the City, an independent network for Labour supporters in finance, and it belies the myth that those working in the sector are all Conservatives. whatsapp We must turn the page on the public perceptions of finance whatsapplast_img read more

first_imgFriday 23 August 2019 4:20 am Thankfully, many have flagged this policy as discriminatory, and a “rapid review” has been announced. But fertility is not the only area where NHS attitudes should concern us. None of this, however, is the point. While we can debate over family units until the cows come home, it is no business of the NHS to make such judgements. It is meant to provide access to care, not pontificate about who deserves it. Never mind that the former two groups more than cover the costs they impose on public finances, providing a net saving to the Treasury of £22.8bn. The narrative is removed from fact, creeping closer to crude intervention every day.  News sources earlier this week reported that NHS South East London is denying single women access to IVF treatment because, according to the report, single mothers “exert less control on their children” and “place a greater burden on society in general”. But as long as the NHS does provide women with IVF treatment, it should not be determining which women are worthy of public access, based on how heavily their ring finger is weighted down. There are plenty of cultural and even philosophical questions to unpack here, about parenthood, upbringings, and the rest. As someone who was raised in a single-parent household for most of my childhood, I understand the hardships that come with the lack of a dual-support system. That said, an active and loving parent’s presence trumps a dozen passive guardians.
