Ian: That's quite harsh! One thing that the majority of disinterested people say about Ofcom is that is a rather successful regulator.

Realy, they seam like a bunch of idiots to me! They can never make up there mind, and there desisions are inconsistant and seam to depend on who has given them the biggest back hander or the minister involved.

I'm sorry Ian but I have to agree with Brian here, it SEEMS to me you have little knowledge of the working of Ofcom and you should REALLY do a little more research into their workings.
