Democracy is one person, one vote. Right?

But in elections in the City of London, businesses and banks can vote. The bigger the business, the more votes it gets.

Although the rules say these votes should be allocated to workers fairly, businesses have been criticised for handing those votes to CEOs and managers.

We’re still waiting for proof that big businesses are consulting their workers. This isn’t democracy. It’s Britain’s Wall Street.

Get the word out and share this video. Let’s get the big money out of politics together.
