|The BBC's interpretation of "North West"|
Ah, thought I, this will be interesting. There has been a special case up in the North West, where the government agreed to wave some of the tax, but immediately the company importing the petrol into the islands increased it's price by a corresponding amount. Let's see how this has impacted on the population, and how the expected 3p a litre increase will make the North West the most expensive petrol in the world.
Pfffff, silly old me.
This was the BBC in London and for them the North West is in fact the South West to us.
So off we went to Manchester.
Is it worth £146 a year to be completely ignored? The world for the BBC stops at the border, except, of course, when they are collecting their tax so that Alan Yentob and his likes can travel first class to New York.
