"Prime Minister David Cameron has said attacks on business are motivated by 'snobbery' and that enterprise is a force for 'social progress'.
"In a speech in London, he urged people to resist the 'dangerous rhetoric' of those who say business is inherently self-interested, and cannot be trusted." [Only Hammerson, David, only Hammerson.]
"... Mr Cameron said he was 'sick of anti-business snobbery', adding:
"The snobbery that says business has no inherent moral worth like the state does, that it isn't really to be trusted, that it should stay out of social concerns, and stick to making the money that pays the taxes."
