    A Tesco store will “wreck” a local community?!?

    Please. It’s a fucking supermarket! Get a bastard grip, for god’s sake.

    Yeah, because the original poster implying that not building a Tesco store would kill off the entire regeneration of South Bristol is entirely reasonable.

    Been up Sandy Park Road recently?

    Been up North Street recently? Aside from the odd cafe/bar that wouldn’t be affected by a Tesco opening anyway – it’s a fucking dump. What is there that is so worth protecting? A few tired looking hardware and charity shops? Big deal.

    I just think people are letting their politics cloud the issue, with this bizarre hang-up on the “evil” corporation Tesco just because it’s an almost-too-successful supermarket. Would the hand-wringing chattering classes of Southville be protesting against this if it was a Waitrose or a Marks & Spencer wanting to build there? Somehow, I think not.

    And who are the hand-wringing chattering classes to decide on what the area should and shouldn’t benefit from? Christ, when I lived in Bedminster I would have loved a Tesco on the site of Ashton Gate.

    Sorry, I forgot that shitty understocked and overpriced Spar clone halfway up the street. I can see how people couldn’t bear to lose that to a Tesco – I’m converted (!)

    How about:

    I think the Callington Road tesco is a souless fuckhole.

    Anyone who doesn’t agree is letting their politics cloud the issue,

    Oi Dave thats my road you’re slagging off. What fucked-up dump of a shithole do you live in?

    I think all the shopping streets in Bristol are a bit endangered. There are some that are gone: Stapleton road, Bedminster West Street -both of which you can blame on the supermarkets nearby. But look at all the others. all the banks, gone, now replaced by bars. Bookshops? no more. Post offices? Not for long. Travel Agents? Why? Every time we -and it is us- buy something online, that’s money going out of the city, money the high street or the supermarkets don’t see. Little by little, every time we hit the “Add to shopping basket” button, we move closer to a world where “shopping basket” doesn’t mean what it used to, something you carried around while you bought stuff.

    Polly – you might want to get a PC repair shop to take a look at the shift key on your keyboard, it looks like it might have a bit of a dodgy connection as half your letters are randomly capitalised and it makes your posts hard to read.
