In the mad rush to increase shareholder value and dividends the UK has been sold off to the highest bidder.
Football clubs (topical…)
Utility companies (all types)
Well known “British” brands like HP Sauce and Harrods
Now it looks like Colemans Mustard is a casualty of decisions made by multinational owners
Arguably the people of the UK - apart from the rich (&institutional shareholders e.g your pension provider) have not benefited from the great sell off.
