0 Have your say LIDL has reached a record share of the UK grocery market, according to figures released today from Kantar. The latest grocery market share figures, published from Kantar, show year-on-year supermarket sales were flat during the 12 weeks to August 11 2019 as the tough comparisons with 2018’s strong summer continue. Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar, said: “The memory of last year still looms large for retailers and this summer’s comparatively poor weather, combined with low levels of like-for-like price rises, have made growth hard to find for retailers. “July’s hottest day on record wasn’t enough to shift the market into growth, but the grocers will have been encouraged by glimpses of better weather during the past four weeks which helped boost sales of summer staples like hayfever remedies, suncare and burgers by 17%, 8% and 5% respectively.” Lidl’s sales increased by … [Read more...] about Lidl reaches record market share, according to Kantar

I want to remain resolutely optimistic about our country’s long-term prospects. We all know this is a great country. Sadly, it’s one currently very poorly led by a political elite, some masquerading as non-elite, which has great difficulties discerning and telling the truth. I am discouraged by just how badly Brexit has been handled to date, and currently pessimistic that this is going to get any better any time soon. I am worried that the longer the sheer lack of seriousness and honesty, the delusion mongering goes on, the more we imperil our long-term prospects. It is not patriotism to keep on failing to confront realities and to make … [Read more...] about Ivan Rogers: no deal is now the most likely Brexit outcome

Lots of parents are social media addicts (even if we’re not really aware of it), so it’s no surprise that our children fancy having their own accounts. And while many mums and dads will blanket ban Instagram until teenage years commence, there are plenty of others adopting a watchful eye and encouraging their kids to utilise it. So, who’s got it right? “The best age is when a child is able to recognise the real risks involved with having such an account, and where they could be made vulnerable to exploitation,” says Dr Fivos Cacoullis, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at Cardinal Clinic (cardinalclinic.co.uk). “I would say somewhere around the age of 13 for most children.” Mum, writer and artist Vickie Neave, also agrees: “In an ideal world, I would love to say 14, but the pressure is intense. They [my kids] ask daily. It seems like hourly. It’s not a case of giving in, but once you feel they are ready.” She suggests that … [Read more...] about Ask an expert: When is the right time to let your kids have an Instagram account?
