GMB takes aim at CVC and the Tories

I'm a bit behind the curve with this, but here and here are press releases from the GMB about the eye-watering incomes (though the BVCA doesn't want us to call it that) of partners at CVC, the owner of the AA/Saga.

Meanwhile, it seems pretty clear that parts of the Right want to turn Darling's changes to CGT into a political campaigning issue. See for example the hoo-hah in the Telegraph. This could be a problem if they manage to build the idea that Labour is clobbering small business start-ups. For an alternative view, Martin Wolf's piece in the FT today - Darling is correct on CGT - is a good read and worth using as a counter-argument.
