    Eviction restrictions

    The government's announced it's extending a ban on commercial evictions which was due to finish at the end of the month. It means landlords won't be allowed evict businesses from their premises for not paying rent until next March. Sean hears from a landlord who says his industry is in shock. But businesses say it's desperately needed help.

    And Sean looks into what's driving the rise in the cost of living. The latest figures show inflation's risen to a two year high.

WAIT A MINUTE……Here’s Mickey.

Old habits die hard, especially for those of us at a certain age. Listening to WUTM podcast whilst working is a pretty old habit but recently I tend to let it drift in and out of my subconciousness. Sean sounds a little perkier today I thought as I got stuck into my emails…..WAIT A MINUTE…..can it be? YES, hurrah, it's Mickey. Now I am fully engaged, WUTM has my full attention and this calls for a slice of cake to celebrate.

Extremely negative outlook

If you enjoy waking up to a bloke and his guests being really negative about the economy and business in general this is for you.

It doesn’t surprise me that a financial BBC podcast has such a negative outlook, but it’s just disappointing because this podcast has potential.

There are plenty of positive stories out there. I’d recommend showcasing some of them.

I tried to persevere but have had no choice but to unsubscribe.
