I've never been particularly worried by Tesco's alleged death grip on British retail. No matter how powerful companies are, they manage to self-destruct sooner or later. In fact, Tesco appears to be going for 'sooner':
Parents shopping with their own children are being refused alcohol by over-zealous supermarket staff - for fear they are supplying drink to minors.Well, quite. I guess parents are meant to make a special trip, just to buy their booze.Or they could, just as a last resort, tell Tesco to shove it and shop at Asda. Hell, I don't even have any kids, and I want to tell this bunch of snivelling weasels where they can stick their prohibitionist-fluffing lunacy.
Workers have been told not to serve adults accompanied by children in the latest crack-down on underage drinking.
However diligent shop staff are applying the letter of the law and refusing to serve parents who are on weekly shopping trips with their children.
