Official confirmation9 of recovery will mean the UK, the last of the major G7 economies to leave recession.

There is situation when the banks ever think, just undermines everyone's confidence in anything, and they just depleted10 my butcher's business overnight basically.

 

-Actually we just shut our beauty salon11 at moment ,because most of people can't afford to have beauty sessions even when it comes to hair,I'm thinking to drop down my prices,it's gonna be done so soon, people find it so expensive now. It's a big luxury to them even to do their hair.
