Four employees at a long-term care facility in Peterborough, Ontario are today's Cunts of the Day.
Today we bring you yet another horrendous story of people working in a care home abusing those they are paid to care for. Camille Parent suspected his 85-year-old mother, Hellen MacDonald, was being mistreated and installed a hidden camera in her room. The footage he captured showed employees both abusing and neglecting his mother including, horrifically, "one staff member is seen shoving a feces-covered rag in MacDonald's face".
It is worth watching the video in the article to catch the CEO of the St. Joseph's at Fleming facility saying, after watching the footage, that he wouldn't give his personal opinion on whether the staff were being abusive or not. The man is a spineless fucking prick whose mild reaction to incontrovertible evidence of patient abuse is bewildering.
Suspension is hopefully the very beginning of what happens to these four utter fuckheads. Let us hope they soon find themselves in court and then in jail where those who abuse the elderly and infirm should rightly end for the shameful, cowardly, bullying assholes that they are.
Sponsored by people who were pleased to hear that pedophile priest Gordon Rideout has been jailed in the UK for 10 years. Rideout had denied 34 indecent assaults and two attempted rapes in the 1960s and 70s. Fuck you Rideout, you disgusting piece of shit.
Amazon, Google and other wealthy tax avoiding corporations are this week's Cunts of the Week.
Something us little folk are supposed to swallow blindly is that the rich end up paying less tax than the rest of us. We have learned this month about tax havens where billions of dollars are hidden from the HM Revenue and Customs in the UK.
Corporations, we are told, also have a duty to minimize their tax bills, something which has come to light in the UK with Starbucks, Amazon, Google and today Marks and Spencer. These guys are just doing what is best for their businesses by exploiting tax laws.
This week, Google and Amazon have been in the spotlight once again with the Guardian reporting on how they pay fuck all tax on billions of dollars of income generated in the UK. MP Margaret Hodge told Google's European boss Matt Brittin that she sees the company's tax behaviour as "devious, calculated and, in my view, unethical". Google, the company that vows to "do no evil", was perfeclty called to account by Ms Hodge. Amazon, meanwhile, appears to be based in Slough, UK but when it comes to paying tax it tells a very different story indeed.
Today, Google chief Eric Schmidt has defended the company's tax affairs saying they always try to do the right thing. Do they fuck! Wouldn't it be nice if we learned of corporations that go out of their way to ensure they pay their fair share, rather than constantly hearing about how these fuckers work flat out to interpret tax laws to their advantage, often to the point of not paying any tax at all?
Some people are standing up for these companies, but in doing so they are defending the indefensible. Is there not a direct line between revenue collected and the money that is spent by the government? Decisions like cutting the benefits to the poor and disabled would hopefully not be so readily made if there was more money in the coffers.
The UK government has no small part in letting the rich pay less tax. While many of those with money in tax havens might well be friends of those in power, many corporations have been given a free ride by sweetheart deals arranged by the likes of über-cunt David Hartnett. Let us not forget either that someone who bravely blew the whistle on such deals, Osita Mba, has been threatened with the sack and treated as a criminal. The stench of corruption is rife everywhere.
While regular earners have, quite literally, no choice in paying tax and are chased down like criminals if HMRC deems they have not paid their share, corporations and rich people have been steadily avoiding paying their share for years and for that they are a disgraceful shower of cunts, each and every one.
