Does the (former?) Monopolies Commision look at local issues?

Lynne, you queried the change of name from years back. An intimate male piercing, said to have been adopted by Queen Victoria's husband, is called a 'Prince Albert'.  Seems plausible the brewery thought it inappropriate to continue with the name in a genteel neighbourhood?

William Power did a very good job on my balcony.  He lives on the Bovis estate so is undoutedly local.

If ITV costs anything less to run than the BBC I'd be very suprised. Even if I don't own or watch a television , advertisers pay to run ITV and consequently I pay for it when I buy their products. No escape! If I chose to buy a newspaper six or seven days a week, I'd pay vastly more each year than a TV licence - and the papers are supported additionally by advertising.  Sky's monthly ...

As a lifelong socialist (with a small s) I am horrified that Corbyn was imposed upon us.  A pacifist is an idealist, not a strong leader or prime-ministerial candidate , although maybe(?) an honorable person.  My vote has already been cast by post into the Wigan area, where Labour's votes are traditionally plentiful anyway.  If Labour were to rise back as a viable opposition, then we could hope ...
