WOW just caught up with episode 2, it was very clear to me that Morrisons were not interested in changing their policies. It will be very interesting to see what comes out of the follow up programme next year especially with the householders, we all know how we can pick something up with enthusiasm for it to dwindle and revert back to our old ways.

Yeah, I thought that they showed themselves in a very poor light, offering up going-over courgettes labelled as class 2 alongside class 1 at the same price. Oooh, and people bought the fresher ones? There's a surprise.
It's the level of proof you'd expect of an experiment conducted by 9 year old. I'd like to have seen them offer curvy courgettes or other veg, at a very slight discount but of absolutely equal freshness, say 2p a kilo off, and sit back for a month and see what happens.

Makes me really mad seeing those pictures! How difficult would it have been to ring up the local Domestic Violence Co-Ordinator and enquire if any of these bikes could be donated to children who are currently spending their first Christmas in a Refuge?
They could have marked the underneath of the bike frame with maybe something like TD for Tesco Donated, which means it cannot be returned for cash value if they were bothered about it getting returned etc!
Those bikes at the very most would have maybe a puncture or a few scratches on them; any parts missing could have been replaced easily. A child in Refuge (and I have worked with many) would be utterly elated to get something like that!
A Tesco spokesman said: ‘Our Stretford store chose to dispose of a number of three-year-old, ex-display bikes that had parts missing and could not be reduced to clear or offered to colleagues.
‘In future, we will ensure any similar items are first offered to local charities, as we do with a large range of products.’
Tesco said the decision was made at store level and does not apply as a policy regionally or nationally. It said it was a genuine mistake not to offer the bikes to local charities and groups first.
