CITY VIEWS | ARE YOU MORE OR LESS OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE UK ECONOMY THAN AT THE START OF THE YEAR?

DAVID GOULD
METRO BANK

“I was more optimistic about the UK economy before recent events occurred, but Barclays has changed that. I’m hoping as new regulation comes in we’ll start to get trust back in the economy.

SPENCER JONES
LLOYDS

“I’m more optimistic but mainly because my personal situation is slightly better than it was then. I feel like people are accepting the recession now and starting to learn how to deal with it.”

OLIVER SCHOFIELD
RISCS

“I wish I could be more optimistic but the banking scandal has again rocked my confidence. The Greek election turned out alright, but that’s just pushing a cork in for a moment – its going to explode off again.
