Sometimes a day comes when the chickens come home to roost and there is nothing to do but sit at the back of the shed and put a bag over your head.That day came last week for Sir Philip Green when Peter Hain named him in the House of Lords as the businessman facing accusations of bullying and sexual harassment.Whether or not Green is innocent or guilty – he denies the allegations saying, ‘Nothing that I’ve said was ever meant to be offensive’ – the question of whether rich ‘celebrities’ should be able to pay expensive lawyers to protect their identities in such cases is an important one.While it is fully understandable that those accused of sexual or inappropriate conduct should wish to keep anonymity because of … [Read more...] about Opinion: Should we boycott Top Shop over Sir Philip Green story?
