The Tories don’t care if workers are treated like Kings or slaves. They do care about money though. Owners of large businesses have money and they want to influence Government policy to suit their own pockets. The Tories are only too happy to oblige.
In 2012 the Tory leadership invited Adrian Beecroft to draw up Tory employment policy for them.
