Blue Collar Conservatism

Does the Government actually understand our high streets and their needs?  Will state hand-outs be enough for businesses to survive?  

They are just some of the many concerns business owners have raised following the Government's recent announcement that beauty salons, casinos and theatres - among many other types of services - must stay shut whilst pubs, restaurants, swimming pools and bingo halls open.  

Are these decisions informed by science?  Or is there something altogether more discriminatory driving the decision-making in Government? 

Joining Esther McVey to discuss these issues and more are four business owners who are still unable to work because of lockdown regulations:

(00:57) Roberta Dyer, owner of Roberta Beauty Redefined

(08:15) Cathryn Lyon, Head of Hair & Beauty at Manchester College

(12:07) Simon Thomas, Chief Executive of The Hippodrome in London

(20:39) Paul Roseby, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the National Youth Theatre
