Storm Technologies Ltd boss John Brooker claimed Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn resents those making good money and wants to hike taxes – and told employees to vote Conservative.
A boss threatened any of his staff that voted Labour that they would be made redundant first if Jeremy Corbyn won the General Election.
The managing director of Watford-based firm Storm Technologies Ltd, John Brooker, warned employees that job losses would be on the cards in the event of a Labour victory.
He wrote: “If by any chance Labour win, we’ll have to re-think a few things here at the company so if you value your job and want to hold onto your hard earned money vote Conservative.
“Labour voters will be made redundant first if Labour do win and things slow down.”
Mr Brooker has today reportedly described the email as “internal banter” taken out of context – but, in hindsight, he said he admitted regret for any offence caused, The Independent reported.
The email – sent to everyone in the multi-million pound company – began with the hope staff had exercised their right to elect a chosen candidate or party.
But then it explicitly told them to vote Conservative if they believed in free enterprise and progression without being taxed out of the game.
