I believe we are facing a danger that could plunge us into a bright future. And it takes the form of extreme ideology. We see it on both sides of the political divide.
On the right, we have the threat – even the inclination – of no business as the endpoint of our Brexit negotiations …
For some on the right – this propensity for a contract is driven by zeal for something beyond this, which is the wholesale deregulation of the UK economy.
But I want to make it clear that British firms, big or small, do not want this. The intention is to improve the quality of good jobs, not to downplay them.
They embrace Brexit and will do everything they can to succeed. But when no business becomes its own ideology, seemingly intent on ignoring the impact on jobs and livelihoods, then we have a problem.
Meanwhile, left-wing ideology is at least as damaging. The Labor Party proposes the largest renationalisation program this country has ever experienced at great expense with uncertain tax refunds and no clear path to better customer service.
His latest proposed nationalization of part of BT was a strong color and it has let cold through the town hall at home and abroad. Many companies question whether their investment is safe. And some people think – are we next?
These ideologies on both sides do great damage to our economy. Not just in the future, but right now.
