The IoD is looking for a new chairman. About which an outgoing – no, an, not the – bod says:
A clash between a “very strong Thatcherite image” and the modern views of British entrepreneurs lies behind a decade-long decline in membership at the Institute of Directors, its outgoing policy chief has claimed.
Edwin Morgan, who left the lobby group yesterday, said that the institute had spent years shifting from the “really strident ultra-free market” stance for which it was once known to a more measured position.
Would be a fun job to reverse that, wouldn’t it? Given that it could be the shifting that has led to the decline.
After all, there ought to be at least one organisation representing free market headbangers out there, no?
