Outlook Cheerio then, ENRC, and please don't leave the door open on your way out. The "more Soviet than City" natural resources company is gone from the London Stock Exchange, and good riddance.

In a speech to the Institute of Directors this week, George Osborne took aim at the "costly impact" of Britain's employment regulations. The Chancellor promised that the Government would publish a "wholesale review" of this area of the law. This will apparently look at the unlimited penalties applied to discrimination in employment tribunals and aim to "simplify" the administration of the minimum wage.
