(Reuters) -UK's main stock indexes ended higher for a second straight session on Monday, boosted by commodity-linked shares and Telecom Plus, with investors digesting the British government's reversal of tax cuts in its new fiscal policy. The blue-chip FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 mid-cap indexes rose 0.2% and 0.7%, respectively, marking a positive start to the fourth quarter. The British government reversed plans to cut the highest rate of income tax after their "mini-budget" sparked turmoil in financial markets last week and prompted rating agency S&P Global to cut its outlook for the nation on Friday to "negative", sending the mid-cap index into its steepest weekly decline since March.

Ah, its nice to be heading into the autumn again, if only because we can move on from roses, whites and gins and uncork the Cabernets again. Hip hip hooray for Cabernet Sauvignon, the King of all the grape varieties and in my humble opinion the most flexible of of all the varieties for blending and food pairing. Yeah, you might have guessed, I love it!

RIGA (Reuters) -The centre-right New Unity party of Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins won Saturday's election, according to provisional results, with its 19% of the vote putting him in a position to head another coalition government. The results - with 96% of districts counted - mean Latvia should remain a leading voice alongside its Baltic neighbours Lithuania and Estonia in pushing the European Union for a decisive stance against Russia. After a campaign dominated by security concerns following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Karins told Reuters he will be working to craft a coalition of like-minded parties.
