But still not pay them the living wage?

Image

Anas Sarwar only registered as a living wage employee, as an MSP not as director of his family firm, when he announced he was standing for Labour leader in 2017.

Herald reports whether he made “any money from this company at all”, he replied: “I don’t take remuneration from the company.”

However, according to UWS records filed at Companies House, Mr Sarwar was entitled to £333,000 of dividend income between 2003 and 2015, based on his shareholdings.

His wife Furheen was entitled to a further £196,000 based on her shareholdings.

In total, the couple were entitled to almost £530,000 up to December 2015, although the figure could now be closer to £600,000 as the 2016 accounts have not yet been filed.

The company records also appear to contradict Mr Sarwar’s repeated assertion that he plays no part in the running of UWS, despite being one of the largest shareholders.

In a statement earlier this month, he said: “I am a minority shareholder [in UWS], not a director, and play no active part in the running of the company – and never have.”

He also told Radio Scotland this week: “I have no role in the company… I have no say in how the company operates.”

However, in December 2010, Mr Sarwar signed a company resolution creating a new class of share which ultimately benefited his wife and his sister-in-law.

      He no Phantom
      But a menace but only by keeping the blinkers on his diminishing band of followers
      Who he will cut and run from,upon receipt of pre promised establishment
      Reward
      Leaving his merry band of abject deluded faithful bewildered until another imposter picks up the reigns
      But by that time the horse that they flog
      Is a dead one

  2. He ” has no say in running the company” BUT has he EVER pressured whoever does run the company ( presumably someone he knows ) to pay the Living Wage ?

    As he is so close to various Trades Union leaders I wonder if THEY have EVER raised this matter with him ?

    Surely if there is ONE employer in Glasgow who would be paying AT LEAST the Living Wage it would be that company closely associated with The Labour Leader , Anas Sarwar ?

    1. Make no excuses whatsoever for Sarwar, he is a hypocritcal lying trougher working against Scotland and the people of Scotland it’s simple and clear. Problem is he is not the only one! I wonder what he promised the GMB lot (reps or plants?) to be thuggish louts and cut their own noses off to spite their angry stupid faces, idiots.

  3. There is absolutely nothing wrong in owning a business and making money. The issue is once again distortion of fact for political means. A sort of “Oh no, not me guv” for public consumption.
    Creation of wealth through business gives us our economy. In general business owners take risks, work hard and employ people and pay taxes.

  4. The contrast this morning between reviewing multiple examples of FM interviews and speeches elsewhere and the BBC/Scotland/Politics web-page is almost laughably obvious…
