As the blue chip index reshuffles this week, other firms are braced for a familiar fight against relegation “There is no disgrace in Watford being a yo-yo club between the top two divisions, because sometimes they can be a yo, if you know what I mean.” Those are words from 2000 attributed to the late former England and Watford football manager Graham Taylor, whose tactical innovations memorably included bypassing both central midfield players and the usual conventions of English diction.

Christmas gifts: does your family splurge or go for zero waste? 30 Nov 2:00am Christmas gifts: does your family splurge or go for zero waste?
We speak to Britons about their habits, from backing local business to making presents at home Maybe you’re the type tempted by Fortnum & Mason’s top-of-the-range Christmas hamper containing beluga caviar and 40-year-old port ... and all for just £6,000. Or perhaps you’re fed up with the vulgarity of Christmas consumerism and are pegging back your spending this year. The average family in Britain will spend about £660 this Christmas, according to a survey this week by the financial advisers Hargreaves Lansdown.

Should we really care about bank branch closures? 30 Nov 2:00am Should we really care about bank branch closures?
Closures are a personal disaster for bank employees, but many customers hardly notice It’s nearly December and I haven’t been in a branch of my bank so far this year. I don’t think I went last year either. If my bank shut half its branches, I don’t think I or many of its other customers would even notice. How should we approach stories about banks closing their branches? Rush to the barricades and demand they are kept open? Or sigh and accept that some of these high-rent locations barely see a customer for hours, and are going the same way as the telephone box?
