Outlook More proof that Friday’s ugly consumer grab-fest worked wonders for shops’ sales figures has emerged from John Lewis. To no great surprise its weekly numbers confirm that last week was the best, in the partnership’s 150-year trading history.

Outlook It might seem strange to say it on the day Aviva and Friends Life confirmed their huge tie-up, but mergers and acquisitions involving this country’s companies are becoming a rarity, according to the Office for National Statistics. Its figures show that the number of takeovers between British businesses fell during the third quarter of this year to the lowest level since records began 45 years ago. The agency recorded just 30 involving firms worth £1m or more, down from 46 in the second quarter, itself hardly a big number.
