I suspect this is one of many rumours doing the rounds at the moment, but what with the government announcing that (much) OS data will be given away gratis and the recent murmurs about slashing public spending in the next budget as a result of Gordon's massive spending spree (including Robert Peston's rather humorous, if alarming, warning of an impending "stubble"), it should come as no surprise that there will be some slimming down ion government. Last week The Guardian reported on moves to reduce the number of Quangos and sell off various agencies, with OS included in the list. Who knows what will happen and will an election in the off-ing how this will change. You've also got to ask yourself how attractive OS will be after the announcement that they are now giving data away. It gives the wags plenty to speculate on though!
