[Talk-GB] RFC Mechanical edit: shop=betting to shop=bookmaker for selected names

Further to my previous mail. I have added a section about bookmakers on the UK
Retail Chain
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/UK_Retail_Chains#Bookmakers> page
which I set up recently (at least in part to make it easier to know what
the consensus tagging was for various chains).

Here is a GeoJSON
with the anomalous values, everything is a node with centroid of a polygon
replacing the way.

I hope this might mean we can hunt down and resolve some of the long tail
of tag values.

Note that we have a long way to go before we have all UK bookmaker shops
mapped (only around 10% of Ladbrokes). I'll seek figures for the other

Thanks for Matthijs for raising this.
