    "A courier for the parcel giant DPD who was fined for attending a medical appointment to treat his diabetes collapsed and died of the disease, it has emerged. Don Lane, 53, from Christchurch in Dorset, missed appointments with specialists because he felt under pressure to cover his round and faced DPD’s £150 daily penalties if he did not find cover, his widow has told the Guardian."

    If everyone was communism he wouldn't have died because no one could afford parcels.

    Good job.

    And thus Chaoticbutterfly strikes again... yes it may have been unfair on DPD’s part but blaming capitalism doesn’t seem to be doing anyone any good

    I see none of you guys actually have any solutions other than to call poeple names. Please continue making sure the only poeple saying we should do something about it are the socialists. It's good for our public image and bad for yours.

    The simple solution would be for those unhappy with their current employment contract to seek a new job

    Nope. The simplest solution is to make such practises illegal.

    But by all means. Make sure it is only the socialists saying these things. Is great PR.

    Well what regulation would you suggest imposing to prevent this happening again?
