Reader's Letter Of The Day

From The Evening Standard (8 August 2013, page 53):

BY campaigning against the proliferation of betting shops in his constituency, Shadow Business Secretary Chukka Umunna has probably been acting in Gala Coral's best interests.

According to your article, Coral already has two betting shops in Umunna's Streatham constituency, so its former chairman Neil Goulden presumably has every interest in ensuring that no further licences are granted to ensure it market share is not diluted.

That's too subtle for them.

L, it wasn't too subtle for the ES's most excellent letters editor.

Whether anybody reads the letters page apart from people who submit letters is a different topic.
