Former Brown Business Adviser Savages Ed

Former M&S boss Stuart Rose is the latest big business panjandrum to fall in line and slag off Labour. Instead of taking a moment to listen to the words said, Labour types have immediately branded Stuart Rose an evil Tory, as he took a peerage last year. Although, they seem to have some amnesia at another role that Rose has played in his long and illustrious career. As the BBC reported in those heady days of summer 2007:

“Gordon Brown is creating a special council of business leaders to advise him directly as Prime Minister, the BBC’s business editor has learned… Members will be available to Mr Brown to give him advice as and when needed.”

And who was on this council?

BUSINESS COUNCIL MEMBERS
Damon Buffini, Permira
Stuart Rose, Marks & Spencer
Tony Heywood, BP
Sir Terry Leahy, Tesco
Arun Sarin, Vodafone
