Supermarket or Sainsbury's Debate?

Well, the debate is underway...

If the argument was whether we needed another supermarket/mini-market in Mill Road then that would be fine with me. Personally, I don't think there is a huge demand for another one, and could have been persuaded to support the protestors.

However, it is not phrased that way at all. It is all about 'brand' names opening up in Mill Road.

A new Sainsbury's is therefore a 'bad thing' in the 1066 And All That terms of the protestors while, bizarrely, the existing national chains in the road, the Co-op and Londis, are in place and to be protected from future competition.

Folks, you've chosen the wrong argument.
