I want a society that provides decent jobs for those who can work and decent security for those can’t.
RFK was a compelling figure because he was willing to challenge his audiences, and in turn connect with them in a unique way. Kennedy showed that our values define us and can inspire others to believe in the possibility of change and a better society.
I like independent films… European films. I do go and see popular films as well because my kids force me.
Governments of all stripes want to deliver growth and rebalance their economies now that they have learned the hard way that, left to their own devices, markets pick expensive banking losers.
There is this sense of David Cameron leading a Government that’s badly out of touch with ordinary people’s lives. I’d absolutely welcome the opportunity to show all political leaders what life is like for most people.
I suspect there are people in all walks of life who need to be dragged into the 21st century in terms of attitudes towards women.
All the evidence shows very clearly that if you are a member of a trade union you are likely to get better pay, more equal pay, better health and safety, more chance to get training, more chance to have conditions of work that help if you have caring responsibilities… the list goes on!
The image of the unions is still not in tune with where we actually are, which is fifty-fifty men and women, with an increasing number of women at the top. I think it is changing, but I’m not complacent about this.
A business is good if it gives a decent day’s reward for a decent day’s work, treats people decently, and gives them a voice at the top.
