Outlook Sometimes the most revealing testimony is inadvertent, observed the Treasury Committee chairman Andrew Tyrie during a grilling of James Leigh-Pemberton, the executive chairman of UK Financial Investments (UKFI).

Chris Blackhurst: Equitable Life campaign proves a gift for opportunist Ukip leader Nigel Farage
