No response from Bushy's to DED e-mails

Threatening a local brewery with legal action over its use of the initials 'TT' was just a way of starting a conversation.

That's according to Rob Callister - the political member with responsibility for motorspsort on the Island.

The department of economic development has come in for criticism this week after it was revealed it was threatening to sue Bushy's.

Mr Callister said a letter was sent as the brewery wasn't asnwering government e-mails.

And he blamed the media for the story making the headlines.
