@BBCAlagiah So very sorry to hear this. We are all rooting for you, George. Wishing you all the best.
So who are the Xmas winners and losers? My take on @bbcnews at ten with some sobering thoughts on the year ahead from @rahrichardh
Just interviewed Charlie Mayfield from John Lewis partnership. Selling groceries has been a bit of a "bearfight". On Waitrose: "we actually think it compares very well when you look at comparable periods to most of the other retailers who have reported."
A mixed bag of retail news this morning. Xmas disappointing for M&S, clothing down again and poor performance in food. Tesco sales up, not as much as expected. John Lewis firmly in the winners camp. Waitrose sales up, but weaker than other players.
Sainsbury’s boss favourite stat from today? Friday before Xmas, they were doing a grocery order every second. Massive shift over five years.
