Liberty for the masses!

Liberty - one of the last bastions of true British retailing, the shopping equivalent of tea at 4 o'clock and cricket whites on the green - has got itself a little bit of rough by pairing up with Target. When I lived in Texas, Target was the place to go when you needed to buy 56 rolls of toilet paper and gallon bottles of nail varnish remover. We fondly called it "Targé" and now it seems to be living up to its posher side. The new range is pretty lovely, actually, and it makes a change to have a "Liberty Lite" range tas opposed to the mortgage-inducing prices we are used to. I'm love, love, loving this bicycle - perfect for the springtime sunshine!
