Top food writer backs protest against plans for new Tesco

Unfortunately this isn't in relation to the store in Sheringham but one in Scotland. Joanna Blythman, author of Shopped: The Shocking Power of British Supermarkets, is leading the fight against a plans to convert a former Meggetland petrol station in Craiglockhart into new shops. She said: "Tesco is often accused of bullying its way into neighbourhoods against the community's wishes and they now have the ideal opportunity to show that they are fulfilling their commitment to act as a 'good neighbour' by withdrawing from the site. Good neighbours do not steal business from existing businesses, cause a bottleneck of traffic congestion or settle where they are not wanted or needed."
Hear, hear!
