From boardroom to parliament: Karren Brady wants to foray into politics

Karren Brady, vice-chairman of West Ham United, Apprentice star and LondonlovesExcellence Awards judge, has hinted that she might foray into politics.

“Anything I did in politics would centre around getting people into work,” she said, in an interview with the Radio Times.

“I think if you have a job – it doesn’t matter what kind of job – it’s a step on the ladder, getting up in the morning, having a purpose in life – and there are too many people unemployed.”

This is not the first time when Brady’s spoken of her inkling to enter the political arena. In 2011, she told the London Evening Standard that unlike her boss Lord Sugar, she is a Tory supporter. “I’m a Conservative supporter, and if they asked me, I’d do anything for my country. That becomes more appealing to me the older I get. Even if they gave me the sewerage system, I’d give it a good go.”

However, earlier this month she told ITV chatshow host Piers Morgan that although she would like to get into politics, but the Tories hadn’t approached her.

“No. I don’t think they watch Piers Morgan. But I would like to know what some of the problems are to help them find the solutions. It’s very easy to let politics pass you by and think you can’t make a difference. If everyone had the same attitude, things would never change,” she said.
