Well, that's that then. If I understand it correctly, Nick Bamford – Sofa's chairman, no less – is against the merger of Sofa and the LIA. Or at least not for it. (Money Marketing, August 26). It would seem by implication that so is Money Marketing.
What is sauce for the goose must be sauce for the gander. So let Money Marketing as well as Sofa and the LIA provide freedom of choice, diversity and, dare one say it, even differing viewpoints.
As far as representation is concerned, an excellent point was made by one of your other correspondents. It is easier to ignore one body than several.
