Andy also dismisses Beijing’s stimulus measures as ‘bad medicine,’ which will only reignite inflation.

Martine lost both legs in the 7/7 Circle Line bombing. She was last to be rescued. Trapped in debris for an hour, she’d lost 80% of her blood supply. Then came a year of rehabilitation during which she learned to walk again, with prosthetics. Yet she still sees herself as lucky: the Paralympics, secured the day before the bombings, gave her a new goal. She now has 40 GB caps in sitting volleyball. The ex-marketing manager addresses change, goal-setting and diversity.
