Are Tories facing 'passing off' probe in Henley?

Oops - the accident prone Tory campaign in Henley is in trouble with Archant, publishers of the longstanding glossy mag Oxfordshire Life. You see, the latest Conservative campaign publication here is, er, a glossy mag called 'South Oxfordshire Life'.

Publishers are, not surprisingly, keen to retain the good name of their magazines and get very angry about any instances of someone trying to borrow their magazine's title for their own ends.

I understand that Archant are currently 'in discussion' with the Conservative campaign about the matter. A grovelling apology may well be demanded.

Oh dear!

I trust that the "notional" sum of damages the publishers are likely to insist on in addition to the apology will figure in the Tories return of election expenses.

At least we can count on the background picture of the poppies having been taken in Oxfordshire.
