What is the business case?
Since none of these politicians have been in business or any m eaningfull occupation, I hardly think they ought to preach.

Vincit Veritas - Actually, after university Nick Hurd ran his own business. Archie Norman MP was also ceo and chairman of Asda!

HYUFD, The admirable Archie Norman did not feature in this clip and so your intro of him is not relevant. I also respect Howard Flight.
Nick Hurd may well have run his own business but I do not recognose it as a household name, is he related to Douglas Hurd?
This clip is short on how this worthy sounding enterprise gets started exept mentioning Tax payer money. In the words of the Dragons from the Den, "I'm out!".
HYUDFD, to be fair, it also probabble that you have not heard of my companies either.

This is yet another example of the old government ploy:
Take over responsibility for an issue
Enforce taxation on everyone to fund it
Exclude input from anyone except the state insiders
Announce that government has failed
Give the job back to the private sector but keep the cash and tax
No civil servant is sacked and no politician resigns
We get fed up even more

I recall Nick Hurd's cv from the time he stood in Kensington and Chelsea. It read oddly: a little bit of this, a little bit of that and perhaps no more than 18 months doing any one thing. Not the reassuring and solid cv an employer would wish.
