There was a headline in The Times that caught my eye and filled me with alarm. It read; Prepare for a nightmare Christmas.
Since it’s only September 30 how could anybody know? Who was making this prediction? Mystic Meg?
Actually it is somebody we should be taking note of. The warning comes from Clive Black, a Phd working for the brokers Shore Capital whose job it is to advise clients on where to spend their money in the retail industry.
So I back his judgment because if you start telling people where to put their hard-earned money and you get it consistently wrong you won’t be in his kind of job for very long.
And this is what he says and this is who he blames.
Firstly he says it’s nothing to do with Brexit but all to do with mismanagement.
He blames the civil service for some of the problems.

‘’It’s not just the politicians but their permanent secretaries. David Kennedy (the Director General for food) has been a disgrace,’’ said Black.
Permanent secretaries in the Home Office are a disgrace as well. What the hell have they been advising ministers?’’
He expects Christmas to be a nightmare with a shortage of toys, bikes, sofas and electronic goods and the possibility that nut roasts rather than turkeys will be on the table.
Were this to happen Boris would take a pounding in the polls. To my mind he is not working hard enough at the moment.
What got him in No.10 will not keep him in No.10. The Brexit effect will vanish and competence will be the issue.
That is not a strong suit for him.
