  • In the fourth Test Match vs India, England have the opportunity to restore pride and level the series. But how can they do this - with selection, batting, bowling and fielding. Would welcome views from @DMcWilliams_UK @PaddyBriggs and other cricket fans.

  • Seasoned England cricket supporters will not be totally surprised by events today. However, to be beaten in 2 days is quite a severe humiliation.

  • Brilliant fight back from England vs India in the Test Match this morning. 5 wickets for 26 runs.

  • Very disappointing that business organisations like @CBItweets and @britishchambers do not challenge the idea of “non-essential” retail. It is a false distinction and very damaging for the economy. All retailers which properly meet health/social distancing should operate.

  • The United Kingdom of GB and Ireland dates from 1801 - but 70 years later the concept was already being challenged (in Ireland), and from 1916-22 it unravelled with the independence of the majority of Ireland. Now looks likely the rest of the UK will fall apart in next 20 years.

  • Gov’t plans are for zoos to reopen mid-April alongside hairdressers and other “non-essential” retail. The government clearly equates a visit to the zoo with a haircut - which is an essential service - and many other retail activities. #Boris gov’t is really out of touch.

  • If press rumours are to be believed, the easing of the lockdown will be prioritising social activities and sport, over business. This can’t be right. Surprising we have not heard more from business organisations like @CBItweets on this.

  • Sterling up to $1.40 - as I predicted a while ago. Not sure it can go much higher though. This is probably as good as it gets for the pound for now.

  • Retailers are feeling the effects of the current lockdown. The monthly index of retail sales in January is the lowest since May 2020 and only April and May last year recorded lower sales volumes since the pandemic started. Hard times on the High Street.

  • While headline UK CPI inflation remains below 1 percent, it would be much higher if VAT had not been cut last summer. Excluding the impact of VAT and other indirect taxes (CPIY), inflation would be 2.3 percent, above not below the official target.
