In the case of Berkeley Homes the difference fragments are fighting over the same land only to sell the same quality end product... so not the same situation as your example. :think:

Seems an excellent reason for shareholders revolting. Must push the cost of the land up if they are both after it.

Couldn't agree more but if you read my earlier entries you will see the answer I received when I queried the exact same point...

TCB/Quidco rates wont become lower than here, the rates that might be lower if TCB/Quidco merger goes ahead are the merchant offers/enhanced rates that no other cashback site can get.

I have seen the phrase "limited competition elsewhere" used by Compettition Watchdog.
