Click to follow
MARTIN JACQUES has been having new ideas for as long as I can recall. Some are good and some are frankly wacky. However, the central point is surely that, aside from having ideas of varying quality, what has Mr Jacques done? He has lectured and edited, but he has little hands-on experience of anything. He is as much a part of the British disease as those he criticises. As it stands Sir John Harvey-Jones offers a better chance for our salvation.
