    Tesco backing minimum prices on alcohol - hypocrites

    this from a supermarket who build walls of booze at entrances to stores - sell bad lager cheaper than water - then - give double points !!!!!

    Supermarket chain Tesco says it wants to see curbs on the sale of cheap alcohol during this Parliament.

    Tesco has welcomed a promise by the coalition government to ban below-cost sales of alcohol in England and Wales.

    Just the latest way or trying to make money out of peoples genuine concerns.

    Remember the Green revolution that the supermarkets jumped on. Now demoted to a couple of shelf ends.

    the government should not be passing legislation to force merchants into minimum pricing. Thin end of the wedge imho.

    Must be some kind of anti-competitive law that will get broken if they do.

    oh come on - how many times have you seen tesco staff dragging people out of their cars - and frogmarching them to the booze aisle - this is after they have been brainwashed into thinking Tesco rule the world

    20 years time we will be seeing live footage from the houses of Tesco with mps voting whether to outlaw all co- ops - Asdas - Sainsburys

    Are you serious? Tesco always have/had beer deals etc right at the entrance to the store, last year new laws were brought in that meant alcohol could only be displayed in one designated area in the store,the hours when alcohol could be sold were changed too, i`m not sure if this is UK wide but it certainly is in Scotland.

    The only way to control excessive drinking and the anti-social behaviour it causes is to scrap the 24 hour licensing law.

    Hahaha. I can see the next 5 years instead of nipping over to Calais for a booze run, it will be a nip over the border to Scotland to get your booze cheaper.

    How do you work that one out? Most Neds/Chavs call them what you like will buy their drink during ordinary opening hours. The minimum pricing stuff wont work either, in my experience a lot of the clowns that run about causing mayhem drink Buckfast and it`s about £6.50 a bottle, OK i`m not saying it`s an expensive wine or anything like that but there are far cheaper alternatives out there to buy.

    We haven't.

    It's the same people who blame Mcdonalds for their grotesque appearance moaning here.

    The stupid comparison that 'beer is cheaper than water' is utterly meaningless - I don't go to buy a bottle of water for the gym and see the beer is cheaper and think that I can get buzzed whilst I work my lats.:roll:

    If people are really buying Tesco value lager to drink at 9am, then cheap alcohol is the least of society's concerns.

    If Tesco raised their prices then they lose customers to Asda etc.
    If the supermarkets chose to raise prices together it would be against the law.

    another form of advertising/marketing says the cynic in me

    What lager do they sell for less than water? I think I pay something like 35p for 2L of water, and I don't think even White Lightning sells for less than that.

    Now they have 'experts' & commentators telling us that there is a 'sea-change' in sentiment about alcohol pricing...really??!? There should be clear guidance to all about the direct AND indirect impact of drinking alcohol and enforcement of laws on under-age drinking.

    But I thought both Torys and LibDems were telling us that they were going to reverse state inteference...surely this is not what we voted for?

    Of course theyll back this. The only thing that forces them into doing this is the other supermarkets do it. Its just another way to screw us all and thus reduce there 'loss leaders'.
