UK economy


In spite of this morning's hype that the UK's recession may have ended, the third quarter GDP figure remained in the red: -0.4%. It's not all doom and gloom on the south coast, however. John Lewis opened its branch in Poole yestersday and the first day sales were double the company's target with LED TVs flying off the shelves.

Yes, it's surprising that new stores and even shopping centres are still opening. My prediction is that the stores will have a very quiet Christmas, and the sales will start early again.

Possibly, Ellee...should we wait for the Chistmas Eve sales furore?
