For example, the favourite dog of residents in South West London, including Wandsworth and Wimbledon, is the Labrador Retriever.
The breed is more than twice as popular here than in other boroughs.
And in contrast to residents south of the river, the survey revealed people living in North London favour the Smooth Coated Chihuahua over others. posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 3:00 pm
Heathrow Airport accused of not paying corporation tax
Heathrow Airport hasn’t paid corporation tax for several years despite earning pre-tax profits of £429 million.
That’s according to Robert Evans, a Labour County Councillor for Spelthorne, who says he feels ‘badly let down’.
He thinks even those who work at Heathrow will find it pretty galling to learn that it’s somehow avoiding payment of its due share.
He adds the other 'fly in the ointment' is that the Airport’s not British – it was sold off under Mrs Thatcher and is owned by a consortium of foreign companies. posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 2:12 pm
