Labour’s New “London-Based” Biz Tsar Actually Lives in LA mdi-fullscreen


Meet Anthony Watson, the flamboyant, sharply-dressed former Nike boss who has just been recruited by Angela Eagle as Labour’s new “we’re not anti-business, honest” tsar. Coincidentally this is just after donating £10,000 to Angela Eagle’s deputy leadership campaign. The FT reports that Watson will meet with Labour representatives quarterly to “help recalibrate Labour’s relationship with the business community”. While his company Uphold is based in South Carolina, the briefing stresses that Watson is “based in London”. Which is odd, because according to his Facebook profile he lives in L.A.
