Toby Perkins MP, Labour's Shadow Small Business Minister, said in response to Lord Young's reappointment as David Cameron's enterprise adviser: 

“Just when you think that David Cameron could not get more out of touch and out of date, he brings back a man who thought that people have ‘never had it so good’ in this ‘so-called recession’.  With unemployment rising and the Tories tearing themselves apart over Europe, Lord Young's reappointment shows David Cameron is still playing along to the Tories' old tunes.

"Rather than spending his time trying to find jobs for discredited advisers from the Thatcher era or having private negotiations with his Europhobic backbenchers, David Cameron should spend more time trying to save the jobs of British workers and get our economy growing again.”
