      You don’t miss much!
      I hope people investigate these big companies that are giving money to that pro-Brussels group.

      I never dreamed they were political, I thought accountants left their politics at home.

    Warning to Shareholders! Rolls-Royce Bosses To Use Company Cash Against Brexit? 


    BMW tells UK Rolls-Royce and Mini workers of EU ‘benefit’


    Dodgy stuff, that, and it raises questions, the most important being noticed by BBC business editor Simon Jack, who said the email would re-pose a question that was raised in the Scottish referendum, as to whether it was appropriate for companies who do not have a vote, but do have a voice, to get involved in politics.



    Any such involvement is inappropriate, some would say, and, if contemplated, should surely be subject to a meeting for share-holders to debate it.

    And that debate should be followed by a ballot of share-holders, at least. 



    But what does one of my British readers send me today but a VERY disturbing extract from the up-coming Rolls-Royce AGM agenda.


    RESOLUTION 20 – POLITICAL DONATIONS AND EXPENDITURE That the Company and any company which is or becomes a subsidiary of the Company during the period to which this resolution is effective be and is hereby authorised to:

    a) make donations to political parties and/or independent election candidates;

    b) make donations to political organisations other than political parties;

    and c) incur political expenditure during the period commencing on the date of this resolution and ending on the date of the Company’s AGM in 2017 or 15 months after the date on which this resolution is passed (whichever is the earlier), provided that in each case any such donations and expenditure made by the Company or by any such subsidiary shall not exceed £25,000 per company and the aggregate of those made by the Company and any such subsidiary shall not exceed £50,000. For the purposes of this resolution, the terms ‘political donation’, ‘political parties’, ‘independent election candidates’, ‘political organisation’ and ‘political expenditure’ have the meanings given by sections 363, 364 and 365 of the Act.

    The boss-men have added an ‘explanatory’ note below that resolution in which they protest that they certainly would not go handing out cash to any ‘political parties.’

    But they certainly DON’T give any guarantee that they’d not use company cash to boost the anti-Brexit forces.

    I simply urge R-R shareholders to vote this down.

    It’s too big a risk, given the RR Suit-Peoples’ known bias in favour of Brussels!

      Why yes, I have just checked and hadn’t looked at the agenda before. I am a bit lazy and don’t usually bother about voting for company AGMs but since I do have shares, I will be voting against.
      Thanks for drawing my attention to the AGM resolution. I wonder how many other companies have this in their minds to do.

      A timely warning. I’m not an RR shareholder but I will check all my other shares and be ready for a fight!
      Thank you.

      Big business in Britain today is as much an enemy as as the big trade unions used to be. They put their cosy relationship with ‘Big Brussels’ before their own country.
      I understand Rolls Royce is a part of the BMW conglomerate, which is German. So whose interests are they serving?
      Their RR puppets in the UK are just having their strings pulled by Merkel men and they are not alone. The CBI, the big business lobby, has had millons in handouts from the EU.
      So when HMV says ‘Heel,’ the business pooch barks obediently.

      Rolls Royce’s bosses should explain that they have had nearly forty million pounds in grant money from Brussels. There are many other non-British businesses trying to keep us in the EU for the same kinds of reasons, and this link helps people understand what they are up to. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/politics/6952674/The-truth-about-bosses-who-signed-anti-Brexit-letter.html

      Thanks for that. I just voted against their political donations and against re-election of all the directors, because they must have auhorised the pro-Brussels propaganda letter I readabout.
      First time I’ve bothered so I hopea lot of other share-holders take the time to do the same.
