A new kind of phoney

Watching the Leaders’ Debate on BBC tv last night, the venom and agression was striking, and particularly so from three people who said they run small businesses.
In business, ‘we wouldn’t tolerate joke letters’; in business, ‘we know the global financial crisis was not the fault of the financial sector’; in business, ‘we can’t survive if people aren’t on low wage, low security jobs’.

Now we know, that Conservative campaigners were posing as undecided to get into the debate.
Being phoney.
So the point I was going to make – that people in busness should know better, and often do – may be too grand for what actually happened.

The bigger point is that the small businesses I talk to actually need customers on better wages and more secure jobs; money in customers’ pockets to make their businesses more successful.
