Our weekly series digesting the major stories from the weekend and the big issues for the week ahead.

In the first episode of MondayWeek, a new Monday morning discussion crunching the weekend’s big stories and themes for the week ahead, Blackstock founder Andrew Teacher is joined by Bruce Dear, partner and head of London real estate from Eversheds Sutherland to chat lockdowns, spending reviews and the fallout from Arcadia’s collapse. 

The week ahead will see England emerge from a full lockdown into tiered restrictions that, for many, will look much the same. One thing that will look very different quite soon will be the high street with both Debenhams and Arcadia on the brink of collapse. 

In the first episode of a new Monday morning news crunch, Bruce Dear, a leading City lawyer joins Andrew Teacher to chat about the disruption of landlord and tenants relations and how the cloud is really “just a big shed”, in reference to one of this weekend’s more upbeat stories about Microsoft building data centres under water to save energy.
