Yet again that Bristol Blogger has gone a step too far. He's sung the praises of Tesco before (he's addicted to the pesticide residue on the 'value' carrots I think) and this time he's also saying nice things about Julie Burchill, who shares his admiration for them it seems.
They are both dead wrong. Tesco and other big supermarkets represent a very large amount of power in the hands of a very few. They should be subject to at least the following to avoid the worst injustices and to provide a much more genuine choice to shoppers (see http://www.tescopoly.org/ ).
*a legally binding code of practice
*an independent watchdog overseeing the grocery market
* a block on any new take-overs by Tesco or other major supermarkets.
*real support for local shops from local authorities and government
*internationally-recognized workers' rights throughout supermarket supply chains.
