If Trump can be US Pres­i­dent, is this the face of a fu­ture UK Prime Min­is­ter?

Will Peter Jones fol­low Trump’s ex­am­ple?

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

IT seems that af­ter Don­ald Trump’s out­sider vic­tory in the US Elec­tions this month, Bea­cons­field’s celebrity busi­ness ty­coon Peter Jones has been given food for thought.

Mr Jones was in­ter­viewed on ITV’s This Morn­ing on Thurs­day of last week, when Philip Schofield and Holly Wil­loughby goaded him into ac­cept­ing that “any­thing’s pos­si­ble”. He even re­vealed that many peo­ple in­clud­ing his wife, Tara, have been ush­er­ing him to­wards en­ter­ing the po­lit­i­cal arena.

“I have never con­sid­ered it at all... ex­cept for this week,” the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions mogul re­vealed. “I didn’t think it would ever be some­thing that I would be in­ter­ested in do­ing at all.”

But af­ter Schofield asked if it’s some­thing that he would con­sider now, the Dragon’s Den star an­swered: “I have to say, prob­a­bly yes.”

He seemed to be in two minds on the sofa, sug­gest­ing he might work best as an ad­vi­sor rather than the man in charge and that he has an is­sue with be­ing la­belled a politi­cian. But, with the next elec­tions sched­uled for 2020, Peter has plenty of time to make up his mind.

Would you like to see him move to 10 Down­ing Street?
