“Uber and TfL are headed towards a negotiation” said Conservative Party Member Gareth Bacon. “I personally think that Uber will offer a concession which TfL will probably accept”, said Bacon.

The results published by the Office for National Statistics included soya and almond milk to a list which the main purpose is to serve as a reference of the actual consumer trends. The Office and several analysts point out that this may have happened due to the recent growth of "free-from" diets such as Veganism. A new wave of millennials addicted to new trends and worried about their health have pushed these products up to the top of the list. Every day we see in supermarkets how new meat-free, gluten-free or dairy-free options appear on the shelves, on most occasions, at a high value. This can be explained as a
