Fights break out over cheap food in Tesco
At some point during the House of Commons debate on Food Banks - during which heartless Tory ministers walked out LOLing at the poor people - Labour MP for Slough Fiona McTaggart told of fist fights in her local Tesco over discounted goods.
Some branches of Tesco have had to take on extra security staff, because shoppers have been scrapping for bargains. Eyewitnesses have reported people scuffling in the Reduced Section and actually taking things out of other people’s baskets. But this isn't to do with Christmas greed - it's because nobody can afford to buy full price food.
Ms McTaggart said her constituents have seen fights breaking out in her local Tesco on three separate occasions. ‘Poor people in Slough are now fighting each other in Tesco when the discount vegetables and fruit come out.’ She said. ‘Isn’t that a shocking sign in the 21st century?’
Well, you would think so. But not to Tory troll IDS, who left the debate after whooping and chuckling at tales of poverty. Where was he going? To put his feet up on a tramp and eat an entire suckling pig, perhaps.
Tesco have confirmed that this is indeed happening, and have introduced extra security measures ‘to manage the reductions to make sure all our customers can shop safely’.
Ok. You can despair now.
