The Judge RANTS!
"Our entertainment range is particularly important at Christmas
and we take many factors into consideration when deciding which titles
to stock. Ultimately, the most important factor is what our customers
want. In response to some to some of the feedback we have received, we
have decided not to sell the Jerry Springer DVD's this Christmas."
I can't say that I'm impressed by this. Apart from the
mental-fundyists, has any of the feedback shown that people really did not
want this DVD on Sainsbury's shelves? Does Sainsbury's only listen to
that 'some' of the feedback they think will lead to bible-spouting
pickets outside their stores if they don't cave in to it?
Sorry, Sainsbury's, this just won't do. Trouble is, I'm a bit
stymied for supermarkets now. Of the ones in our area, Tesco is
throttling smaller outlets in town centres through its acquisitions
policy; Asda are owned by the despicable WalMart, and the likes of Kwik
Save, Lidl & Aldi are far too common, m'dears. And the
nearest Co-op supermarket is probably about fifteen miles away.
Ah, decisions, decisions! Isn't ethical consumerism wonderful?
