I was lucky enough to attend a Q&A session by Lord Blunkett this week. As you are probably aware, I am a big fan of Lord Blunkett, and in his political career, he has been Education and Employment Secretary, and also the Home Secretary. He therefore speaks with authority and common sense about matters affecting small businesses. Now that he is a Lord, I think this also enables him to speak without being constrained by political party lines.
The event was organised by The Leaders Council. This is a political (non-partisan) lobbying organisation, which works hard to represent small businesses.
