Money Talk: Forecourt crime is more than just drive-offs and no means of payment

Interesting to see that BOSS (the British Oil Security Syndicate) has launched a 'forecourt crime index' to help retailers gauge their own experience against a national benchmark. It's a good idea, and one not to be dismissed, however, the real limitation is that the index appears to relate specifically to drive-offs and NMoP (no means of payment) incidents as if they were the only elements of forecourt crime. Some with long experience in the industry might beg to differ. That's not to suggest that these two problems are insignificant. Assuming that the estimated 30m-a-year cost of these incidents is accurate, that works out at an average of around 3,500 per site nationally.

Money Talk: Budget 2015 (the March one)

It was always likely to be a strange Budget coming as it did just seven weeks before the General Election which looks highly likely to end without any clear winning majority. The Chancellor had to stand up and deliver a Budget that somehow appealed to his existing voters but didn't scare off those who might be thinking of joining them on May 7; and do so in the knowledge that he might not be in a position to put his announced measures into practice after that date.
