An economist, entrepreneur and political commentator, I'm Founder and Chairman of JML, the consumer goods company. I'm also Chairman of Labour Leave, Chairman of the Pound Campaign, and Secretary of the Labour Euro-Safeguards Campaign.
I've been in business for more than 50 years. In that time I've seen hundreds of proud, successful British manufacturing firms forced out of existence and thousands of jobs shipped off to Asia. I've seen skilled manual jobs all-but disappear and areas of Britain that were once thriving and full of hope are now effectively redundant.
We need politicians from all parties to start considering a new economic and political strategy; one that brings business and jobs back to Britain.
In my opinion, as sterling has devalued to a more competitive level since the EU Referendum, there is every chance that manufacturing can now start to recover, investment in our future productivity will start to increase and, in the longer term, there will be less unemployment. I believe we now have the means to raise our growth rate incrementally on a sustainable basis, with rising living standards, more equality and no need for the austerity policies to cut the government deficit.
John Mills says the party will lose over 100 MPs at the next election unless it reconnects with working-class voters
Labour could lose 100 MPs and end up "finished" as an electoral force unless it addresses working class voters' concerns on immigration and the economy, the party's biggest donor has declared.
Labour’s current problems do not stem just from its current disputed leadership contest and the gulf that exists between Jeremy Corbyn and most of the Parliamentary Labour Party.
The Tories face an opposition in disarray. At the moment it is not easy to imagine the Labour Party winning the General Election in 2020. But the real tragedy is that we ought to be able to win. Labour’s message of aspiration should be able to appeal to a very large number of voters across the country.
Eurosceptic donor tells IBTimes UK he wants Labour to attack the Tories over the 'unbalanced' economy.
Labour's largest individual donor is calling on the party to consider deliberate currency devaluation to drive manufacturing growth outside of the South East.
Sources tell IBTimes UK that entrepreneur John Mills has setup the group to help the party get elected.
