Aerospace and automotive firm lobbies investors to reject Melrose offer GKN and its would-be buyer, the turnaround specialist Melrose, are lobbying the engineering firm’s shareholders as the battle for control hots up. The news helped push GKN’s shares up more than 4% to 437.4p, compared with the current value of the Melrose offer of about 424p a share – or more than £7bn. This suggests the City expects either a higher offer from Melrose, or perhaps a rival bidder.

What I learned about capitalism from running a stall on Portobello market29h What I learned about capitalism from running a stall on Portobello market
Bargains were snatched from the shoppers who needed them in order to make bigger profits from people with fatter wallets. It was the trickle-up effect at work – much like our system nowI once had a stall in the Portobello Road market, when it still had a cheap, rubbishy end where you could find thrilling bargains. My stall was at this fascinating, vibrant end, between a book stall and a bric-a-brac stall, on a pavement forecourt facing the public lavatories. Every Saturday, the bookseller, who also sold cinema ephemera, would leave me in charge and go down to the swanky side of the market, which was crammed with tourists. There he would find his own stock, which dealers had snapped up from his stall early in the morning, to sell at a staggering profit on their own stalls, 10 minutes’ walk away.
