Adam Afriyie MP: Business is a force for good

A Conservative who grew up in the "tough background" of Peckham in south London before becoming the party's first black MP a few miles away in Westminster said that business was a "force for good".

Adam Afriyie said companies making big profits should be celebrated, and that teaching business skills in schools was a good way to improve social mobility.

The Windsor MP said "the bigger the profits, the more we should cheer" and that enterprise and competition were the "only way we are going to get Britain back on its feet".
