Commenting on Ed Miliband’s speech to the Social Market Foundation, Liberal Democrat Party President, Tim Farron said:
“If Ed Miliband is so determined to make capitalism responsible, why did he let the banks run wild on his watch and let the gap between executive pay and workers’ wages grow into a chasm?
“We do need a more responsible capitalism that means employees and shareholders know the truth about pay at the top of their companies and have a say in it.
“That’s what the Liberal Democrats proposed months ago and why Liberal Democrats in Government are arguing for exactly that. Ed Miliband clearly has no original ideas.
“The Liberal Democrats are determined to deliver a dynamic, innovative economy that has fairness at its heart.”
