Luke Johnson expresses discontent in the business community as the UK prepares for a harsh winter.
Over last 48 hours I’ve spoken with a number of entrepreneurs and business leaders. Mood is increasingly one of despair. The animal spirits are being crushed by govt fear mongering and dystopian New Normal. Tories are now the anti business party.

Chris Giles outlines the UK deficit, and how it likely informed Sunak’s budgetary decisions.
One reason Rishi Sunak was sparing with the cheque book today…
…. £400bn deficit now looks perfectly plausible for 2020-21
> 20% of GDP….
…That's almost WWII levels of borrowing
