Dyson steps down as chairman

Sir James Dyson, the extrovert entrepreneur, is stepping down as chairman of Dyson to be replaced by Bob Ayling, the former chief executive of British Airways. There are rumours that Dyson will be hired by the Conservatives if they win the next General Election. Last week he produced a 60 page report called “Ingenious Britain: Making the UK the leading high-tec exporter in Europe.”
