Rail franchise bidding has become a contest to find which unsuitable bidder will limp over the line Now it’s formal. Stagecoach will be off the rails in November.

The economy is struggling – but that could be good news for new PM 23 Jun 7:01am The economy is struggling – but that could be good news for new PM
Amid talk of snap autumn election, could Boris Johnson or Jeremy Hunt do what John Major did? The new prime minister could hardly have chosen a worse moment to enter Downing Street. Growth had stalled, there was serious trouble in the Middle East, the government’s flagship policy had made it deeply unpopular. Yet at the next general election, the Conservative party won an overall majority against all the odds. That was how things panned out for John Major after he took over from Margaret Thatcher in late 1990. The economy had just entered a recession that resulted in record bankruptcies and home repossessions; oil prices were soaring after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait; and Britain had been convulsed by a summer of poll tax riots. The economy actually got a lot worse in the course of 1991 but

Why a bookie-bashing Royal Ascot may add to racing’s money misery 17 Jun 10:37am Why a bookie-bashing Royal Ascot may add to racing’s money misery
Results at Cheltenham and the Grand National meeting have left a £17m shortfall in the sport’s finances and a good week for punters would be bad news for racingThere will be quite a few individuals at Royal Ascot this week for whom £17m is the rough equivalent of the small change which the rest of us put in a pot by the front door for emergencies. Racing as a whole, however, still considers £17m to be quite a lot of money, and it also happens to be the size of the dent which was left in the sport’s finances by the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals earlier in the year. The results at those two meetings were, overall, very good for the punters and therefore very bad for the bookies. At Cheltenham, nine of the 28 races went to the favourite, including a six-race sequence on the middle two days when the backers could do no wrong. One of the winners was Tiger Roll, probably the most popular horse in training, who
