Cricket’s role in the British economy

My concern is that there will come a moment when some legislation will be introduced to give new rights to employees that is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. I do not know when that point will come. I have cried wolf before about this—I plead guilty—but the moment will come. I am fond of cricket, Mr. Deputy Speaker, like one of your colleagues. It is odd that when one watches a game of cricket one thinks that one side is winning, but in retrospect one realises that the other side has started to win. One cannot quite pin down the moment, but it happens. There will come a moment when Britain’s competitive advantage has eroded so much that we shall start to lose in the world economy.

What is he on about?
