We know because Mary Portas has told us. In her review for the Government, she said: “The days of a high street populated simply by independent butchers, bakers and candlestick makers are over.”

Well, Mary – Tony Benn once said: “What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?”
