If her tweets about sunny foreign holidays are anything to go by, Mary Kerr isn’t short of a penny.
Unlike victims of the business she ran with her late husband Ian Kerr.
They were behind The Consulting Association, which broke Data Protection laws by compiling lists of union reps and selling the information, which was often incorrect, to construction firms.
This resulted in people being branded troublemakers and refused work, sometimes for having done nothing more than raise safety concerns on a building site.
The Consulting Association was prosecuted by the Information Commission and shut down in 2009, and Ian Kerr died three years later.
Justice for victims has been slow in coming but finally around 180 blacklisted workers settled their claims earlier this year when construction firms paid out an estimated £20million.
For others, the fight goes on and next month dozens of claims are due to be heard in the High Court in a case set to run for 11 weeks. So the timing of tweets from Mary Kerr seems particularly insensitive.
“Lying in the sun on the whitest sand, beautiful music playing through headphones, cocktail in hand… smug look on face!” was a recent one.
I asked if she was taunting the victims and she claimed that blacklisted workers had taunted her, and put the tweet down to “my sense of humour”.
One person who isn’t laughing is Joanne Fowler from Liverpool, who set up the support network Families Against Blacklisting after her electrician husband Ian was repeatedly refused work.
“Mrs Kerr wouldn’t understand the struggle to provide for four children when their father couldn’t find employment due to the blacklisting conspiracy in which she and her husband played such a central role,” Joanne said.
“Mrs Kerr should take a hard look at herself and realise the pain she inflicted on families.
“Her taunting displays a complete lack of remorse.”
