    Why do Peter Green feel they can’t mention the name Mr Devey’s former employers?

    Are they worried people might drive to Surrey to check out furniture there?

    I think they have been conditioned by watching too much BBC television.

    If you remember, it used to be the custom (only on the BBC) not to mention the names of businesses.

    As the decades wore on, I noticed that even even ordinary interviewed on TV felt embarrassed to mention the name of any business. Often they would ask, “Oops! Can I mention the name?”

    As the decades wore on still further, this taboo extended even further to the point where people were thoroughly conditioned into never mentioning the name of a business if being interviewed in any context.

    Voila! No business mentioned. Actually, I used to work for a well known furniture and carpet store in Eastleigh during the mid 1970s.
