    Should retail magnate lose his knighthood over the mistakes and “systematic plunder” that caused the collapse of BHS?

    It remains an outrage that Philip Green has not been stripped of his knighthood and forced to pay back into the pension fund of BHS staff

    Re Philip Green etc: What an impressive politician Frank Field is. Thank goodness someone is getting on with the job.

    Good morning, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the world economy, the financial markets, the eurozone and business.
