"In October, Tesco's chairman John Allan said he would "defend to the death" the board's decision to pay a dividend and that he didn't 'remotely feel any sort of guilt over it'."

Pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

It’s not a question of legality but morals. The fact that one can do something doesn’t mean that one should. I’m conscious that pension providers invest in many kinds of businesses and that dividends are how they make money but dividends are impacted by all kinds of events (and the warning is always investments can go down as well as up!)
