Rt. Hon. Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, looked calm and relaxed at the lunchtime fringe meeting on Monday in Brighton’s Hotel du Vin hosted by the British Chamber of Commerce.

The discussion largely centered on a new British Business Bank hopefully coming in the autumn statement delivered by Tory Chancellor of the Exchequer Rt Hon George Osborne MP. Many new initiatives have come and gone trying to help small businesses and claims that banks aren’t lending are defied by all the banks’ special offers cascading through the letter box.

Further discussions included how Britain needed to export and how online businesses were taking taking away work from Europe to the rest of the world. It was claimed a survey showed 84% in favour of the EU. That may change when they lose their jobs to someone prepared to work for a bowl of rice a day.

John Longford was an effective communicator and listening to him was a pleasant experience.
The audience largely appreciated the speakers. Although the subject of the third runway at Heathrow Airport looks set to bring loads of controversy in times to come.
