Brexit: UK must leave single market says May and UK inflation jumps - analysis with Simon French
Theresa May’s finally made it official – the UK won’t seek access to the single market as part of Brexit negotiations. But can her government still get a good deal for UK business? And as UK inflation jumps from 1.2% to 1.6%, will it be business or consumers who get the better end of the deal? Simon French, chief economist at Panmure Gordon, joined Share Radio’s Ed Bowsher to talk through this and more.

Former racing driver Amanda Stretton explains why men pay more for car insurance
New research has shown that men are now paying - on average - one hundred pounds MORE than women for their car insurance. That's according to a survey by confused.com, which is compiled and published every quarter and gives a snapshot of what the insurance industry is doing. The index has also shown that premiums across the board have increased as insurance companies become more and more expert at gathering data about our driving habits. Earlier on, Share Radio reporter spoke to Amanda Stretton, former racing driver and now motoring editor about the survey's results in more detail.

The recent case of Herry against Dudley Metropolitan Council reinforces the principle that stress alone is unlikely to constitute a disability, without something more. To unpick it all Georgie Frost was joined by Kevin Charles from Crossland Employment Solicitors.

Inflation expert Pete Comley explains soaring Freddo prices
Higher food and air fares helped to increase December's Consumer Prices Index (CPI), the Office for National Statistics said. Inflation as measured by the Retail Prices Index (RPI) rose to 2.5% in December from 2.2% the previous month. To explain more about what all this means for the pound in your pocket Georgie was joined by our reporter Tom Hill. One site, Vouchercloud, has even created a Freddo index which show's just how much the price has increased ahead of inflation. The answer according to inflation expert Pete Comley lies in commodity prices.
