British business leaders are divided over whether it is better to stay or leave the EU. We hear from John Mills, founder and chairman of the consumer goods company JML, which is campaigning to leave the EU, as well as BT chairman Sir Mike Rake, who wants Britain to remain in the EU, while Carolyn Fairbairn, director-general of the Confederation of British Industry, tells us how she intends to speak for all of British business given deep divisions over EU membership. Also, Russell Napier, author of "Anatomy of the Bear: Lessons from Wall Street’s Four Great Bottoms" tells us why financial markets remain vulnerable to a big shock. And Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times gives tips on how to avoid speaking business gobbledygook.
