Whoever is writing this unbelievable script is obviously becoming more desperate for ratings by introducing plot lines that are quite ridiculous. We might be inured to rubbish television, but a loan shark dictating government policy? Oh come on, do they think we are that stupid? Sadly, they think we are.
With an unhealthy obsession with Aston Martins, venture capitalist Adrian Beecroft has produced a widely reported Conservative policy document that proposes an end to employment rights, or “red tape” as the BBC prefers to call it.
It transpires that Mr Beecroft is the owner of a loan shark company called Wonga who offer short term finance at an interest rate of more than 4,000 per cent. Those that default on terms and conditions are subject to threats, harassment and intimidation. Mr Beecroft is a nice guy with gently smiling jaws.
Coincidentally, a proposal in the commons to regulate pay-day loan sharks was defeated by Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs who clearly cannot remember what was contained in their election manifestos.
Dah dum…dah dum…dah dum…daaaaah dum dum dum dum dum dum dum…
