  • Someone has been telling lies. Were the facts about Top Glove obtained independently by the ministry? Were there serious complaints not dealt with? I am not convinced that a newspaper as reputable and reliable as the Guardian would publish facts that they had not cross checked first. The newspaper has too much to lose if it doesnt stick to the facts.
