The Conservatives are better placed than the Labour Party to help the economy out of recession, Luke Johnson, chief executive of Channel Four, has told Smarta.
Johnson gave a speech to today’s IOD convention condemning last week’s Budget, then told Smarta exclusively that he’s ‘encouraged the Tories have people like (shadow media minister) Jeremy Hunt who have owned and run businesses and understand what it’s like to risk their own capital’.
“Apart from anything else, [the Conservatives] have had experience of management, which few politicians have,” the former Pizza Express CEO continued.
“They also understand the stresses and strains of being an employer in the modern world.”
We’ll have a full video interview with Luke on Friday and keep checking Smarta for more on today’s IoD conference.
