John Lewis and Toxic Clegg
The John Lewis model of how to run a company has always impressed by its very logic. The company does well - the ‘partners’ do well. Eminently fair and encouraging. None of this nonsense where the cheeses take home 160 times the average pay. It is a model which should be much more widespread. Sadly the fact that Toxic Clegg has latched onto it as his latest wheeze means it is unlikely to flourish. Since selling his soul to mammon to get in bed with the big boys, Toxic has struggled. He has floundered and in his heart he knows he is out of his depth. The more he tries the worse it gets. He is deeply tarnished. It is a stain which shows no sign of fading.
