John Lewis has reported a good set of results this year and as a result is able to pay a 17% bonus to all staff.
And this is celebrated by the Guardian.
Of course, if you read the guardian perhaps you are more likely to be a client of one of the John Lewis brands and this may have an impact on their reporting.
In fact it must do because in the normal order of the leftie-world view, bonus's are of course evil and always unearned. The money should really have been used to reduce prices and stop the sheer rip off to the consumer that is a can of baked beans from Waitrose, a can that is overly expensive to a single mum struggling on benefits and a brand which also leads to much envy and promotes the hideous consumerism that is rampant within our society to the detriment of all.
At least now the growth in the John Lewis business is fuelled massively by its growing online presence we can be assured that there will be less need for those expensive high street shops with their business rates and employees.
Even better the final salary pension scheme is to be reviewed too as that is becoming too costly. So staff have a bright future to look forward too.
Of course regular readers will hopefully be amused to see me writing the above, but it just goes to demonstrate how partisan the media is today.
Of course, partnerships are a good business format, with some good benefits. Indeed, years ago now the City investment banks, now so hated, were all partnerships - I wonder if this becomes true again one day whether the Guardian will be celebrating the success of a potential Good Bank Capital LLP?
