Gotcha! Lobbyists floor their opponents

UK lobbyists have landed a couple of knock-out blows, according to stories in today’s papers:

WALLOP! Britain’s water companies – doubtless aided by a myriad of public affairs consultancies – have knocked down Ofwat’s plans to cut water prices for consumers.

KER-POW! The drinks industry has used its lobbying muscle to persuade politicians to block legislation designed to set a minimum price for alcohol in Scotland.

Cash strapped bill payers and people concerned about binge drinking will surely be delighted…
