when Heathrow’s third runway is complete, how long will it be before we encounter the same issue with capacity” If we re going to really attract international investors and establish infrastructure links that give our exporters a competitive advantage then we need to go the whole hog and rush through permission for Gatwick’s expansion. The same applies to businesses up and down the country. Each must not get complacent or do things half-heartedly. When I set out with my bag of tools and made a few hundred pounds, which was a hell of a lot back in those days, I didn?t give myself a pat on the back and put my feet up over the weekend. I worked even harder, which enabled me to hire my first employee and invest more and more in growing my business until it became the largest independent plumbing company in London. Not one to rest on my laurels, I took the business to the next level by creating Pimlico Plumbing and Heating Merchants, which not only reduced the cost of parts but created a brand new source of income. Well done is better than well said, proactivity is a key ingredient in the recipe for success and if we re to cook up a storm and develop a business friendly environment that will withstand the unknown come March 2019 and produce and further economic success, then we had better stop all of the pointless posturing and crack on.
