    Mark43 reacted to bored in Sainsburys - Asda Merge ?   
    I will be honest here
    Tesco and booker were a match, that was an easy deal
    Booker`s were strange to say the least it was always "no contest" Booker`s had a different target audience and TBH I never understood why tescos wanted "in"
    Then I thought retail square footage Tescos went from 1bill sq footage (whatever) to 2 bill sq ft overnight
    and the effect to me and you was nil.
    ASDA and JS (sainsburys) are the same and are in the same market and despite all their advertising about how much they care and love us and want us to shop for cheap they DON`T. They care about profit and loss they care about cash flow and turnover, they don`t give a monkeys about us.
    the average lifetime spend of a family in supermarkets is 100k
    the government know this and the end result for a merger is lack of choice = more profit. I normally hate the government but sometime they do have our backs.
    I get my wine and beer delivered from the big players I get my other shopping locally it costs me an extra fiver per week.
    4 legs good 2 legs better remember that sheeple.  
    And btw ASDA were the better people to work for.

    The irony is that Blair opened the gates to immigrants in the full knowledge, later revealed, that new immigrants always, and totally understandably,  vote left for free stuff (thereby ensuring Blair for his subsequent terms the selfish prick, whilst sending our lads to their deaths under bs premises...at least have the dignity to say we don't give a bad and want the oil).....and vote left for hospital care, housing etc etc to be able to establish themselves... fair do, never look a gift horse in the mouth.......The irony is that that their kids and ensuing grandkids etc actually vote right and anti immigrant as they also then have something to “lose" in the way of housing, jobs, higher taxes, inheritance etc etc as a result of the later incoming immigrants...funny huh ?
    Human beings are so predictable.

    Funny that that does not factor into your risk assessment anywhere
    Nor does the thoughts and opinions of countless others.

    Theft ? Sorry but that is bollocks. We pay taxes to have hospitals, police, teachers, social welfare, our rubbish collected, a military, subsidize the elderly with transportation and medicine (one day you too will be old and infirm), roads, bridges, etc..., the list goes on and on.
    I agree that it is common sense to use legal means to avoid overpaying but it is responsible to pay the correct amount. It forms the basis of any caring society and is one of the concepts that puts us, as the British, in a separate class from the rest.
