Business community turns back on Labour

Following on from my piece this morning on the dissent within the Labour party at the moment, it appears there is also plenty of opposition to the party's economic policy from the business community as well.

"Lingerie tycoon" Michelle Mone - a lifelong Labour supporter - has spoken out against the 50p top rate of tax, calling it a "disgrace." Which is pretty much how I thought it would play.

Got to congratulate the BBC on their headline for the story though:

"Bra boss withdraws Labour support"

Someone at the BBC has a sense of humour. For a change.

Actually, come to think of it, it looks like Messers Brown & Darling might too - they seem to be making Labour into a national joke...

I read somewhere she's moved to the tories. That'll be uplifting for them then.

cant see her at the tories subrosa.
although if she wants to use politics to promote herself she will need to go somewhere, surely not the nats?

I think it was one of the broadsheets who suggested she'd move to the tories. She'd never support (oops) the SNP. She's a unionist through and through, not from conviction but because she thinks unionism is her way to more profit.

Not a pleasant woman believe me.

She didn't exactly endear herself to people on The Comic Relief Apprentice.
