Q: Have you been watch­ing the World Cup and how far do you think Eng­land will progress in the tour­na­ment? A: I think it’s all in the tac­tics, Capello is a foot­ball ge­nius and he knows what he is do­ing, it’s all in the tac­tics. Go Eng­land! Q: Have you no­ticed that the World Cup has been a dis­trac­tion in your busi­ness deal­ings? A: No, things feel like they are back on a pos­i­tive foot­ing, peo­ple were concerned about the spi­ralling debt and the “Best to be un­em­ployed cul­ture.” You have to feel like this is now all in hand and busi­nesses in Peter­bor­ough are back to growth and hope­fully we will see some re­fined di­rec­tion for Peter­bor­ough PLC. Q: What would you like to see the Chan­cel­lor re­veal in the Emer­gency Bud­get? A: I feel a hike to 20 per cent on VAT is a right part so­lu­tion. I do not feel we should drive banks and suc­cess­ful in­di­vid­u­als out of the UK. A con­tin­ued as­sault on quan­gos and a level play­ing field for work­ing fam­i­lies needs to be cre­ated. Ev­ery step should be taken to cre­ate new busi­nesses and the Pizza Ex­press or Roll­sRoyce of the fu­ture. Q: What one thing, how­ever large or small, do you think could be done to boost busi­ness in Peter­bor­ough? A: We need to clar­ify di­rec­tion for the city and be­gin the process of rais­ing the pro­file and build­ing on suc­cess sto­ries in the city, Peter­bor­ough is his­toric and open for busi­ness. So­cial en­ter­prise or not-for-prof­its need to drive this in­vest­ment and cre­ate a sim­ple process for driv­ing in­vest­ment. Govern­ment does not un­der­stand the pri­vate sec­tor and the sooner we be­gin the process of mov­ing for­ward in this way, the sooner the tax-pay­ing hard-work­ing fam­i­lies of Peter­bor­ough can reap the re­wards.
