Sports Direct founder, Mike Ashley, will be answering a Parliamentary Committee's questions this morning. Mr Ashley had previously refused to meet the Committee who had asked him to discuss his businesses working conditions.

Jeremy Baker is an affiliate professor of Entrepreneurship, Marketing and International business at ESCP Europe, London Campus. People wanting an MBA pay a great deal of money for this kind of teaching. He defended Mr Ashley on the Today Programme this morning.
I'm looking for a transcript of the following interview because it's a straightforward description of the naked prejudices including frank racism that great many people believe is just good business.
