Centrica boss Sam Laidlaw has given his bonus to charity - very nice indeed . However it doesn't mean that corporate wages are lower , does nothing to address the issue of how much a plc boss is worth nor does it lower anybody's utility bills .

It's unbelievable , honestly . The 3 main parties are all united in their opposition to Scotland using the £ in the event of a "yes" vote . If nothing else is achieved out of the exercise it's that politicians are actualy capable of singing off the same hymn sheet. .

Rejoice ! Inflation has dopped to 2% .
Some early morning algebra for Vince Cable and his cronies , themselves immigrants from Cloud Cuckoo Land . I have never been a great fan of minimum wage legislation as it prevents many SMEs , especially micro-enterprises, from expanding .
In case you've been in hibernation lately the political ground has been occupied somewhat by talk of the standard of living. It seems that most people are worse off , which is of course a concern, even if it is necessary to heal the economy.
