Digby Jones, the minister for the rich

Issue No. 2088

Digby Jones, the former leader of the CBI bosses' organisation and now Gordon Brown's trade minister, has attacked the government's plans for a tax crackdown on the superrich who pay no tax.

Jones is carrying out his unofficial role as minister for rich people. He is just one of the ruling class figures in the government influencing the direction of its policies.

It's time our union leaders started putting the interests of the class they are supposed to represent, the working class, above their loyalty to the Labour Party.
