    Default Tesco - A Multicultural Problem

    Tesco has been accused of unleashing an "unstoppable invasion" of the
    high street by stepping up the pace at which it opens neighbourhood
    stores.

    The supermarket giant is due to launch 150 stores in the smaller
    Express format over the next 12 months, compared with around 100
    annually in recent years.

    Campaigners claim the smaller format convenience stores destroy local
    independent shops and cause congestion and noise in residential
    areas.

    Sandra Bell, supermarkets campaigner for Friends of the Earth, said:
    "Tesco's seemingly unstoppable invasion of our high streets comes at
    the expense of independent shops and leaves shoppers with little
    choice of where to buy their groceries. While the commission's report,
    due next month, is hoped to stop the worst of this retail giant's
    bullying behaviour towards suppliers, it will do nothing to stop the
    Tesco-isation of our towns."

    Tesco, founded by son of Jewish sailor Jack Cohen, grandfather to heir
    of the Tesco fortune Dame Shirly Porter. As an example of the utter
    corruption and disregard for the rule of law in Britain of the Tesco
    family, to avoid paying the 27,000,000 cost of the "homes for votes"
    scandal she claimed she only had assets of 300,000 and fled to exile
    in Israel for 12 years to avoid paying the costs, which had to be
    picked up by hard pressed London taxpayers.


    Tesco: A Multicultural Problem

    In older England the merchant class had many easy-going traditions.
    One tradition was that a respectable tradesman would never seek
    business but wait for it to come to him. Another tradition was that to
    decorate one's store window with lights or colors, or to display one's
    stock of goods attractively in the view of the public, was a
    contemptible and underhanded method of tempting a brother tradesman's
    customers away from him. Still another tradition was that it was
    strictly unethical and unbusinesslike to handle more than one line of
    goods. If one sold tea, it was the best reason in the world why he
    should not sell teaspoons. As for advertising, the thing would have
    been so brazen and bold that public opinion would have put the
    advertiser out of business. The proper demeanor for a merchant was to
    seem reluctant to part with his goods.

    One may readily imaging what happened when the Jewish merchant bustled
    into the midst of this jungle of traditions. He simply broke them all.
    In those days tradition had all the force of a divinely promulgated
    moral law and in consequence of his initiative the Jew was regarded as
    a great offender. A man who would break those trade traditions would
    stop at nothing! The Jew was anxious to sell. If he could not sell one
    article to a customer, he had another on hand to offer him. The Jews'
    stores became bazaars, forerunners of our modern department stores,
    and the old English custom of one store for one line of goods was
    broken up. The Jew went after trade, pursued it, persuaded it. He was
    the originator of "a quick turnover and small profits." He originated
    the installment plan. The one state of affairs he could not endure was
    business at a standstill, and to start it moving he would do anything.
    He was the first advertiser in a day when even to announce in public
    prints the location of your store was to intimate to the public that
    you were in financial difficulties, were about to go to the wall and
    were trying the last desperate expedient to which no self-respecting
    merchant would stoop.

    It was as easy as child's play to connect this energy with dishonesty.
    The Jew was not playing the game, at least so the staid English
    merchant thought. As a matter of fact he was playing the game to get
    it all in his own hands which he has practically done.

    BNP will stem the Tesco tide
    http://www.bnp.org.uk/freedom/05nov03.html

    SUPERMARKET tyrant, Tesco, has just rung up record profits as it
    continues to conquer our High Streets and shopping centres.

    This year's first half pre-tax profits announced on September 20th
    were up 18.7% to 908 million, whilst Tesco's share of the grocery
    market is up to 30.5%.

    Within five years that share is expected to reach 45%, then the
    superstore giant will have enough monopoly power to hike prices and
    squeeze shoppers who will no longer have an alternative source for
    food or household goods.

    Tesco is ruthlessly expanding and crushing its rivals. Its market
    share is almost as big as its two main rivals, Asda and Sainsbury's
    put together, and it shows no sign of stopping.

    Tesco has amassed a 'land bank' of 185 sites across the country on
    which to build new stores. 30 of these will be open by the end of this
    year, and another 56 have planning permission. This 'land bank'
    amounts to 4.5 million square feet of new supermarket space. Compare
    that with the other supermarket chains, Asda, Sainsbury's and
    Morrisons who only have 3.7 million square feet of planned store space
    between them.

    The superstore empire wants total domination of Britain's food supply
    chain. They bid whatever it takes to buy up any potential store sites
    that come on the market, simply to deny them to their rivals.

    The company uses its ever-increasing financial muscle to beat down the
    local opposition it is increasingly encountering as it takes over yet
    another town. In the lovely Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold, an
    application to build a Tesco store had been turned down seven times
    before the local planning officer urged councillors to approve the
    proposal.

    The alternative was to face the heavy costs of an appeal for which
    each of the councillors could be personally liable. Naturally the
    council caved in as they generally have been forced to do everywhere.
    Tesco knows that in civil cases British justice is generally for sale
    to the highest bidder - ordinary folk simply can't afford the immense
    legal costs entailed.

    Tesco, aided and abetted by lesser supermarket sharks like Asda,
    Sainsbury's and Morrisons who between them control almost three
    quarters of the British grocery market, use their monopoly buying
    power to force farmers and other suppliers to sell at unsustainable
    prices, driving many to ruin.

    The uneconomic prices they force suppliers to accept then enables the
    store chains to undercut traditional family shops, butchers, grocers
    and fishmongers, and drive them out of business in town after town.

    Having driven everyone else out of the market, the biggest store shark
    is now devouring the lesser ones.

    You would have thought a Labour Government would be defending ordinary
    shoppers from this approaching big business monopoly exploitation, but
    that's not the case. The Office of Fair Trading can only wring its
    hands and do nothing while the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister
    only pauses from its schemes to concrete over Southern England to
    repeatedly back Tesco in planning battles with local residents and
    their elected councillors.

    Nothing now stands between Tesco and total control of your shopping
    bag but the British National Party. We will stop them in their tracks,
    break up the giant store chains and set free farmers and shoppers
    alike from the tangling web of monopoly buying and selling power.

    Only the BNP will encourage small shopkeepers to return to the high
    street, to complement a responsible but limited supermarket sector led
    by companies like Waitrose which is owned by its staff and management.

    Tesco is a PLC. Anyone reading this is eligable to buy a stake.

    Major shareholders are FMR Corporation & Fidelity Int (5.85%),
    Barclays Bank (4.81%) and Legal and General (4.11%) - all PLCs also.

    CEO is Sir Terence Leahy who is of Irish descent and worked his way up
    through the company.

    Heaven forbid that anyone should give the public what it wants.
    Shopping at Tesco is not compulsory. In fact we seldom use the store
    prefering eith of competitors Sainsburys and Morrisons.

    Tesco is one of the "big 4" which include Sainsburys, Morrisons and
    ASDA (owned by Wallmart which is even bigger than Tesco)

    It doesn't even come close to being a monolpoly as has just been
    reaffirmed in an enquiry carried out by the Competition Commission.

    That must be very reassuring to them!

    Of course, according to your Fuhrer the Griffin the antisemitc stance
    of the BNP is a thing of the past. Future vitriol is to be directed
    towards Muslims.

    You can't even get that right!

    Yes it is odd isn't it. I am no fan of Tesco and choose to shop elsewhere
    where I can. Apparently there are people who do choose to shop there. What
    happened to the Tesco on Mill Road. Has it collapsed yet due to an absence
    of shoppers?

    and no supermarkets apparently!

    I wonder where the idea comes from that supermarkets are generally
    disliked when they are racking up bigger profits and volume turnovers.

    Perhaps some are two young or have forgotten the hey day of the corner
    shop.

    By and large they were hovels that hadn't seen a lick of paint in
    years, lit by bare light bulbs, sanitised by fly papers, restricted
    opening hours rigourously applied. Prices were RRP set and there was
    a level of civility that set you on edge. In fact, only a couple of
    weeks or so ago I was treated in a most uncivil manner by the local
    sub-postmaster for no better reason that I can think of other than he
    was in a bad mood. They are the ones who are complaining about
    closures! Oh well! that's another one they've lost. In future I'll buy
    stamps in the supermarket. It's all the same to me!

    Contrast all this with a visit to a supermarket. Clean, bright, well
    lit, convenient hours, helpful staff, car parking and competitive
    pricing.

    Supermarkets have not reached their dominant trading positions through
    "unstoppable invasions" They are the logical product of progressive
    development in retail marketing.

    And of course much needed by us, jo public. The small shops and local
    farmers never did quite understand the concept of customer service,
    treat the customer nice, fairly and with a passion and it will invite
    customer loyalty. In fact you are quite right they seemed to go out of
    their way to show customers contempt, so we now go elsewhere.

    Well done Tesco.

    Largely they have done it by being a local monopoly.

    Mind you increasingly countrywide as against local as they
