A Captain of Industry

I see my post here has caused some comments from the rightwhingnuts. It is amazing to see the folks who line up behind Lord Black of Cumuppance Harbour, a would be aristocrat and ruthless tyrant over his press empire. Folks like Sun writer and right wing bon vivant Peter Worthington who have been bemoaning his trial as class war.

They all praise Lord Black for being a hard working Captain of Industry. Except they seem to over look that he sunk his ship, leaving the women and children (shareholders, the little people, etc.) to fend for themselves as he and his wife made off like bandits.

Those on the right love their aristocrats. So much so that they create their own little family compacts. Damn shame about the end of feudalism.

Er, but he "left the woman and children" at the express behest of the men who offered him a boatload of money for the company.

I don't want to get into the whole etymology of the word "non-compete" with you here, but suffice it to say he wasn't allowed to stick around the offices. Or the entire industry, for what its worth.

Besides, if you're so worked up about the women and children he abandoned, perhaps you could introduce some of them to the prosecution in the Black trial. After all, they never presented a single shareholder who could show he was robbed. If you have more information, your withholding it to make smarmy remarks on your blog is only doing Lord Black a great legal service.
