Still waiting on the corner

Having never been tainted by undergoing any journalistic training – shut up at the back there – I don’t know if its ethically acceptable to shudder ‘oh no not again’ as some story that has been juddering its flat-tyred, kangaroo petroled, way along your own personal road heaves into sight round the corner again.

3

Cautious approach to spending continues

Consumer spending grew by 1.2 percent year-on-year in February, equating to a decline in real terms when adjusting for inflation.

Know your product

I think it’s probably fair to say that these items have been around for longer than mankind itself, but given the approach of spring it seemed timely to ask just how much you really know about those things we call plants and flowers...

See page 14 for more information.

Market Reflections

In truth I have no idea how to pronounce Ocado – but all my various attempts get nothing but sarcastic mirth from Miss M leading to even more tortured versions of what I assume is a meaningless brand name. Wikipedia – itself a rather strange if reasonably logical appellation – tells me it’s either a made-up word, intended to evoke fresh fruit or a variant on the avocado fruit. Well you can imagine a certain kind of advertising slogan: “Want shopping? ‘av ocado!”

See page 14 for more information.
