An English businessman. He was the chairman of Imperial Chemical Industries from 1982 to 1987. He may have been best known for his BBC television show, Troubleshooter, in which he advised struggling businesses.


I was a natural target for bullying. The school believed in corporal punishment - as well as the headmaster be*ting people, the prefects, who were aged about 11 and 12, were allowed to be*t people. And the bullies be*t people - everybody be*t people.

I used to get my head ducked into basins of water. I would be be*ten continuously with slippers and even sticks. I'd be held down and be*ten.

At the time, I accepted that I was bullyable. I also accepted that I was the only person who was bullied. Years later, when I came to write my autobiography and recounted this, I got a number of letters from people who'd been at the same school. They shared with me that they had also been bullied. For three years, the bullying was more or less unabated. And three years at that age is a lifetime.


16 April 1924 – 9 January 2008 RIP
