    Another good interview. Two at him, he answered their questions, did not dodge the issue. Eventually people may realise he is the only responsible political leader around.

    The attitude of the programme’s presenters is interesting. I’ve noticed that since Vince was re-elected a few tv interviewers have said that they’re pleased to see him back, and in this clip (0:22) he was asked “…..and now that you’re Leader, what would you do about it?” – in other words, “our viewers would like to hear what you think because your opinion is authoritative and widely respected”. At least, that’s my reading of it.

  • It’s a good question; do we focus on our entrepreneurial culture or continue to bring in foreign investment to MNCs? I suspect Brexit at least initially will mean more of our GDP is generated by SMEs. Sorry about the acronyms.

    The re-working of the economy in the productive areas, such as manufacturing and especially exports, technology and training, plus on infrastructure and on the regions, have to be the way forward and not huge Corbyn style retail giveaways, or Tory deregulating of credit.
