I would like to cheer at the decision of Kent County Council's pension fund managers to put the interests of fund members ahead of the prosecution of New Puritan nudges:
Kent County Council (KCC) has been criticised for investing nearly £24m in four tobacco firms as part of its pension fund portfolio.
It has invested about £13.5m in the Altria Group, £3.6m in Philip Morris £3.5m in Imperial Tobacco and £3.4m in Japan Tobacco.
The authority said the amount was 1% of all its investments and it had a duty to get the best return for its members.
That's right, these are successful and profitable companies providing an excellent return on investment - I'm pleased that the political correctness of the New Puritans is being ignored by this pension fund. Long may it continue.
