This morning, I was up early for an ‘In Conversation’ style breakfast event with my local business group, Connect. Mike Cumper, who chairs Connect, led the proceedings, and we had good discussions on Brexit, student debt and the need for the Conservatives to appeal to younger voters. In light of last week’s Budget, we also discussed home ownership which is of particular importance to young people right now.
My thanks to Sandown Park for kindly hosting the event again, and to Mike Cumper, pictured with me below, for steering a lively and stimulating discussion. This was the last Connect event of 2017, and I’m looking forward to further meetings with Connect next year.
