Some urgent questions about money. Is it better, spiritually and mentally, to work from a positive balance where your debts have been hidden away (or rather, offloaded on to a loan with a high interest-rate), rather than a permanently negative account that's always overdrawn? And why is it that money streams out of your account faster than it clocks in; that the £300 spent at Topshop makes a far, far bigger dent than the same amount earned?

Matalan was flavour of the day among those pushing takeover stories yesterday. The last time the discount retailer was mentioned as a likely bid target, gossips talked of a move on the group by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. Then the talk was of John Hargreaves selling his 52 per cent stake in Matalan to the US private equity giant and thereby sparking a bid for the company. Yesterday, dealing rooms were alive with talk of an offer from Wal-Mart, the world's biggest retailer.
