Lower case even in a name: Northampton borough council. The only acceptable use of square brackets is for explanatory notes in reported speech: “Thank you [Foreign Minister] Mr Smith.” Don’t use round brackets to refer to something that could either be singular or plural, like ‘Check which document(s) you need to send to DVLA.’ Always use the plural instead, as this will cover each possibility: ‘Check which documents you need to send to DVLA.’ See Great Britain Upper case. Upper case in titles: Spencer Tracy, Chairman, GDS. The acronym should come first as it’s more widely known than the full name.

Always lower case unless it’s part of a proper title: so upper case for the Judicial Executive Board, but lower case for the DFT’s management board. Use headings or bullets instead if you want to emphasise particular words or sections. Lower case except where it’s a title with the holder’s name, like Chief Constable Andrew Trotter. Upper case, but generic references to tax credits are lower case.

Lower case in all instances, including ‘the coalition’.

“BBC Three's logo hasn't changed in 8 years so in an age of smartphones we needed a whole new system that fits the digital world, not something analogue just shoehorned into it.

Never use etc at the end of a list starting with these words. Use EU when you mean EU member states: EU countries, EU businesses, EU consumers, goods exported from the EU, EU VAT numbers.

“What is most striking is the new logo and the fact it doesn’t actually say three.

It’s easy to belittle the importance a logo has in supporting a brand, and I'm sure the usual critics will have their say - “It looks like Adidas”, “it looks like a “hamburger menu icon,” “it doesn’t even say three”, “are they Roman numerals” – but If I'm being honest I’m not worried.
