There are no punches pulled on this week's show as the panel make their feelings known about the government's recent performance on the economy. Will Liz Trust still be PM by Christmas or do turkeys have a longer shelve life? Chris Price director from PACT Property explains the impact to commercial and rented property the governments mini budget is having and it's not pretty.

Stagecoach West decision to cut over 300,000 bus journeys and Gloucestershire's County Council poor response to the news leads the leader of the Forest of Dean District Council - Tim Gwilliam to vent his frustration and bewilderment at the current situation.

Whilst Adam Coleman, CEO of Gloucester Culture Trust explains the positive impact culture can have on the city but feels there is a lack of real drive and investment for culture from Gloucester City Council.

Even Sam Holliday a regular on the panel finds it hard not to wade in but the truth is for SME's its looking increasingly bleak and the PM and government need to get a grip on the economy.
