Market forces. Only if the Government allows.

So much for free competition. We in the UK talk a good fight but are crap at implementing sensible laws and rules. We have a Competition commission who investigate things and if companies get too big or powerful without following their rules they get punished. Somerfield has just fell foul of them. Plus where I live our council won't allow any competition to set up in the town centre so our sole superstore is the only place to buy from.

So much for letting the market decide.

And, as someone pointed out previously, and I love this, Why is there only one Competition commission?
