    @YourSpace_Beth @victoriabeckham @SpursOfficial @RishiSunak @Conservatives looking after all their mates in the FTSE 100 companies and we see the greed and self serving nature of all of the above and more. Whilst small businesses like me, my BIL, my best friend and more have no income, fall through massive gaps in gvt support.

  • From ws1:

    #FTSE not quite as exuberant as the US nonetheless based on the rsi only one stock in the ftse 100 technically oversold is #CNA Nearly 50 are over 50 .. Overly simplistic maybe but technically speaking the bargains have all been snapped up. imo now is not the time to be chasing.

  • From DmMatthewsd7:

    @katiehind @RishiSunak Vast numbers of the ftse 100+250 made notable profits year after year. They are still furloughing! No claim against them! They and their staff also paid notable taxes. The proposal did not come with caveat on how much money a company made. This appears an attack on the beckhams!
