I had never heard of the competition and markets authority before, fancy them coming out of the woodwork. I bet the civil service passed it around departments before they copped it.
Any surviving remainers have the rest of the transition period in 2020 to become rejoiners

I thought they were well known as they've had plenty of publicity.

They recently stopped the merger of Asda & Sainsburys.

I think they were originally called the Monopolies Commission which then became the Competition Commission & now the Competition & Markets Authority.

Iím obviously way behind the times. I had only heard of the Monopolies Commission. Why do they keep changing their names?  Must cost a fortune in new headed notepaper

Probably to bury past cоck ups. The right to be forgotten rules only apply to individuals.
