Allister Heath has also soared up the rankings of the nation’s most-respected commentators on economics and business, joining the country’s top five, according to a Populus/Open Road survey of top opinion-formers published yesterday.

Open Road said: “Bucking the trend set by its paid-for rivals, City A.M.’s circulation is growing and, even with a relatively undeveloped digital offering, Allister Heath’s ascendance into the top five further highlights the growing influence of the paper.”
