Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day         Leslie Monk

Dear Vince Cable

by  Monk 23 November 2011

Please get a grip.

You have adopted a spurious default position with your claim that Business is disincentified to hire staff because it is too difficult to fire staff unfairly.

A month ago, you said this idea that you are now proposing, was “madness”, and I agreed with you on these pages.

Please get a grip.

You said today that you did not intend to diminish the rights of employees, but I am struggling to understand what exactly you are doing if your proposal does not diminish the right of employees to fair treatment. You say you need to do this in order to help small business, but no one can fail to realise that you are about to support all employers, small medium and large, good and bad, and especially bad employers who have the most to gain from your proposals. Please get a grip.

I have had cause to help out a few employees against bad employers, and in fact I have so far only encountered bad employers. I cannot discuss this small number of cases here but I can direct you to one employer who is demonstrably incapable of treating an employee fairly.

Theresa May hired the man who fired Brodie Clark, and set about saying why publicly in the Houses of Parliament without troubling herself to find out Mr Clark’s position. Apparently Theresa May was not inhibited by the rules that were in place since Mr Clark was not an employee of one year’s service, but a distinguished employee of some 35 years service.

The Tory default is less about treating employees appropriately, but about removing the notion of unfair dismissal altogether, That is what we call  humping and dumping.

Apparently we are on our way back to Garrow’s Law, and on your watch.

How do you feel about that? 

Disincentified” Yes, I invented a word.
