Hypocrite Theresa May and Tories took £50,000 from firm that bet on Carillion’s failure

The hypocrisy is appalling but nobody should be surprised by the information.

Corrupt Tories are happy to take money from anyone, and won’t care that it comes from the collapse of a company they were paying to provide public services.

It’s all part of their belief system: Privatise profit…

Nationalise debt.

Theresa May has been branded a “total hypocrite” for accepting £50,000 from a firm accused of making money off Carillion’s failure.

Naya Capital Management UK, which made the generous donation to the Tories a week before the general election, is one of a string of hedge funds that bet on the company’s share price falling.

Their value fell more than two-thirds in July, with Naya reportedly making £7.6million.

Carillion plunged into insolvency six months later.

Jon Trickett, Labour Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, said: “Theresa May is a total hypocrite.

“Despite promising to crack down on irresponsible businesses her party is happy to accept cash from those who have pocketed millions of pounds from Carillion’s collapse.”

    Privatisation isn’t about better or cheaper public services, its only about providing publicly-funded cash cows for the Tories and their wealthy friends.

    You see, this is what we should have done. we should have pooled our money together, maybe just a £1 each from the dispossessed and put it on Carillion failing and falling and made a fortune.

    That is what Goldman Sachs and city widehoys do, put their money and investments on a fail.Its like knowing the Champ is going to drop or know and even be involved in the situation and circumstances working against a company which means you know it is going to fail before anyone else.

    We need to open a bookies book.and go play on market websites with rumour, myth, gossip and fact, ie Goldman Sachs was found to be an unsecure bank a few years ago.

    If you knew the facts and what is behind it Goldman Sachs would go down like a stack of pins. by telling the truth and affecting the confidence.

    We miss the opportunities and leave it to the wideboy.

    I must go back and play on the market analysis websites.
