Marjorie Scardino — American Businesswoman born on January 25, 1947,

Dame Marjorie Morris Scardino, DBE, FRSA is an American-born British business executive. She is the former CEO of Pearson PLC. Dame Marjorie became a trustee of Oxfam during her tenure at Pearson. She has been criticized by Private Eye magazine because, while Oxfam campaigns against corporate tax avoidance as part of the IF Coalition, Pearson was "a prolific tax haven user...routing hundreds of millions of pounds through an elaborate series of Luxembourg companies to avoid tax". She became the first female Chief Executive of a FTSE 100 company when she was appointed CEO of Pearson in 1997. She is also a non-executive director of Nokia and former CEO of the Economist Group. During her time at Pearson, she had tripled profits to a record £942m. In December 2013, she joined the board of Twitter as its first female director, after a controversy involving a lack of diversity on the Twitter board... (wikipedia)

I think the business community is smart enough to realise that just having a trade union is not enough. They are smart enough to know they need to be part of a union that has political and financial power.
At heart, Pearson is in the intellectual property business, be it through publishing books or the 'Financial Times'.
It takes a long time to build democracy, to build freedom.
The politics of Europe is unimaginative and bureaucratic.
