Leading article: Who are you?

"Everyone knows a bloke called Dave," said the owners of UKTV G2 in 2007, explaining the digital television channel's quixotic rebranding exercise. But they probably ought to have checked if there were any companies out there called Dave too. For it turns out that there was a media consultancy just around the corner from the broadcaster already operating under that blokeish moniker.
