It’s the way ya tell ‘um

by Les May

THE former finance director of Carillion Richard Adam, he of the ‘funding the pension scheme is a waste of money’, dumped three quarters of a million pounds in shares in March and May last year.   He had stepped down from the company in December 2016 and got rid of them at the earliest opportunity.

If you wonder how these people get away with it look no further than the news coverage that this revelation generated in the ‘i’.  It got just 34 lines compared with the 46 lines devoted to a story about a dog owned by a university professor being relocated to the UK and about the same to a story about Cadbury’s chocolates and the NHS.
