Michael Salter, David Cameron's broadcast advisor, has been named the UK's eighth most influential gay person by the Independent on Sunday. At number 11, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats Simon Hughes was the highest placed MP to make the annual Pink List, whilst Nick Herbert, Angela Eagle and Lord Mandelson also feature.

Manufacturing production has fallen for the first time in two years, according to new figures. The Markit/CIPS PM Index showed output fell for the first time since June 2009, with orders down for the first time since July 2009. Hopes of recovery were also dampened by a four-month low for mortgage approvals. Just one in 10 British people believe the economy is in good shape, according to an Ipsos Mori poll.


Nearly 65,000 Britons are receiving winter fuel allowances despite living abroad, prompting calls from the TaxPayers' Alliance to end payments for ex-pats.
