Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte's victory allows the Netherlands, 'not to fall on the wrong side of populism,'
So the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte's defeated a challenge from a far-right group in the country's elections. He's ahead of three other parties including one led by anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders. Speaking after a victory party the Prime minister said: , the [Dutch] people have said no to another country where the domino stone of the wrong side of populism would topple over. Geert Wilders is putting a brave face on coming second. He tweeted that he is proud of the more than one million people who voted for his Party of Freedom (PVV). To give his analysis, Nigel Cassidy was joined by Jeremy Cook, Chief Economist at World First.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) says the UK construction industry could lose almost 200,000 EU workers if Britain leaves the single market.

There's a record-breaking 4 million businesses in the UK - but can they last?
New figures just out show that the number of companies in the UK has reached a record high - breaking the four million threshold for the first time. The boom is fuelled in a large part by the formation of new companies, with roughly 665 thousand started in the UK last year. But is this symptomatic of a flexible, dynamic workforce - or are there just no more full time jobs? Nigel Cassidy was joined by Jonathan Richards, CEO at breatheHR, a firm that provides software to SMEs.
