"Tesco petrol. It's back to normal and we're sorry." My arse!

Would you like to elaborate?

To be fair on them, they're offering to pay for repairs if they broke your car.

Yeh, now. They were quick to deny it was anything to do with their supply of fuel at the start.
Plus they're only paying in order to keep their reputation, not becuase they wan't to, as this is now going to dent on their £ billions profits. Besides this they still pay unfair money for their supplies (such as milk), which is why I personally hate them!

To be fair to Tesco they were the first to say it was their fault, and of course they are only paying up to keep their reputation, no one in their right mind would WANT to cough up £millions.

Also isn’t milk a loss leader in the supermarkets, so they are kindly passing the savings they get by rodgering the farmers on to you.
But I’m a good lad and don’t use supermarkets too often.

Electric Sheeps friend backs up my statement that Tesco (and other large retailers) are causing financial hardship and business failure in many suppliers.

16p or less a litre, is that really fair?

I also know someone whose friends own a champagne export company in France, and delivered the goods to Tesco, and it took them 9 months to receive payment which was not in the contract and nearly made them go bust.

The fact is Tesco would not do it out of good will, but seeing as it has been given so much attention (and will probably be on Watchdog) they are now doing so.

Or howabout the way Tesco seem to use the planning system to effectively pauperise local Councils into letting Tesco have their way?

Tesco; every little hurts...

Rhys says:

True, forgot that hildegard.

Getting planning permission for a store, building it 25% bigger on purpose, and getting away with it.

I like your slogan!

Not mine, though it was the Portwood ("Gosh our contractor must have read the plans wrong, ho hum.") affair where I heard it first...
