After yesterday’s excitement, things are a little more subdued today.
Sterling is back on the decline after a brief reprieve earlier in the week. The currency is riding the Tory leadership roller coaster and also tripped up on Thursday after the Bank of England held interest rates at 0.75 per cent.
Meanwhile, Mike Ashley is back in the news after his Sports Direct warned it will vote against the re-election of every board member at Goals Soccer Centres, in which it holds a stake.
