“The Chancellor is so out of touch”

1 Mins

Speaking at The Entrepreneurs’ Summit, Bishop tells the story of how he pulled Darling to one side and spoke his mind. "You’ll never guess what he said…"

"The Chancellor turned to me and quipped, ‘Well, you didn’t go into business to make money, did you?’"

Bishop shakes his head. "That man is so out of touch with entrepreneurs. He made me feel greedy. I was flabbergasted."

At least Bishop isn’t put off by the government’s new tax regime. "If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ll run a business irrespective of what the government does or says. CGT isn’t going to deter people."
