Angry green men

First outing today for these chaps - here demanding Local Business Zones to help protect independent shops and other firms from soaring rents.

Other councils offer some protection for the kind of shops that not only make their towns more interesting, but that also keep more of the local spend within the local economy. Chains may take more in the till, but only a tiny proportion of that gets re-spent locally.
