Coventry Building Society 

March 2001 – The voting papers are not only highly colourful and highly biased but this time the accompanying letter contains what is almost an instruction rather than a recommendation for members to vote in favour of the board’s wishes.  This is the society with the democratically elected Member of Parliament Gillian Shephard on the board.

Our Comment – We recommend that you vote against everything on such a grossly contrived and undemocratic document.  We also recommend that anyone in her constituency should write and complain to Gillian Shephard.
