Who needs OFCOM?

In the latest Ofcom broadcast bulletin, recent issues with Capital FM and Heart in Luton have been resolved thanks to swift action from Global Radio.

At Heart, a breakfast interview with Daniel Merriweather received one complaint for language. Over at Capital, there was a problem with text entries for tickets to their Jingle Bell Ball. Read the whole story in Radio Today So a private company acted in a proper and business-like way, like any other along the High Street - so why do we need Ofcom? What do they do - if it's uphold the law - surely that's the job of our justice system? I wonder how many days they will last in their current form IF the Conservatives are returned to power at the next general election?
