Wants Business in PoliticsDoesn't Want to be a Politician

In an interview with The Guardian
I do think the government needs real business advice, rather than attaching names for publicity reasons. Lots of different people in business could add value, not just by being advisers, but by being embedded in steering committees. [...] I’m not sure I’m cut out for politics, because I wouldn’t bullshit the nation. I’d much rather be open and honest with the electorate and say: “This is reality, this is the situation we’re in and this is what we’re doing to get out of it”. While that might be quite refreshing to hear, I don’t think it would go down too well. I’m not saying I wouldn’t ever be interested, but I’m pretty focused on my life in business at the moment.
