Brexiter Sir James Dyson has slammed Rishi Sunak’s government.
The billionaire businessperson said the PM’s has “shortsighted” and “stupid” economic policies.
He claims this has left the UK in a state of “Covid inertia”.
Dyson criticised the government’s “ever higher tax bills” for the private sector and regulations, saying it is imposing “tax upon tax on companies in the belief that penalising the private sector is a free win at the ballot box”.
“This is as shortsighted as it is stupid,” he wrote in the Telegraph. “In the global economy, companies will simply choose to transfer jobs and invest elsewhere. Our country has an illustrious history of enterprise and innovation, born of a culture which we are in the process of extinguishing. We have got through the worst of Covid, but risk wasting the recovery.”
Dyson wrapped up the piece saying “it is not too late for Britain to shake off its Covid inertia” if the government acts fast. “Starting with the spring budget in March, it must incentivise private innovation and demonstrate its ambition for growth.”
This sounds a bit like Truss and Kwarteng’s plans and that ended well…
A LOT of people had a similar response to Dyson’s comments…
Harsh or fair?
