Everyone's saying

Muncaster helped trigger the latest phase of the London free newspaper war with the successful launch of City AM. Now that News International has entered the fray, there could be some tough battles ahead. But it's a challenge that this larger-than-life, ebullient Scot (nicknamed, we know not why, as 'The Lunchmaster') will relish.
