How rude was that woman Shocked she sounded horrible and I'm glad she got cut off for telling that man to shut up.
It's all very well having different views and all that but why insult listeners.

They had a feature about a new Tesco being built in Sherringham (norfolk) and had the usual 2 sides of the argument.
There was a chap on the phone who was against and this lady who was clearly for.
However she proceeded to call the gentleman an oik, questioned his ability to read, then told him to shut up when he started speaking. She also called all the listeners who disagreed with the Tesco "middle class idiots"

Laughing I've now heard it on the i-player.

North Norfolk Council has declined the application (again), in favour of one by the Greenhouse Community Project, which will be run by Waitrose and include 21 acres of specially prepared arable land for 200 allotments adjacent to it.

In a town of 7,000 inhabitants I would have thought that the existing Co-op/Somerfield and Sainsbury's Local, in addition to the independent traders in the main street, would have been sufficient. However, North Norfolk is a bit of a desert for Tescos, and of the Big Four, only Morrisons is represented along the road at Cromer. They obviously hope to attract a lot of custom, and traffic, from up to twenty miles away.

Tesco is trying to rush through a lot of planning applications at the moment, in anticipation that the rules and criteria will be tightened after the election.

I'm off to Sheringham on the 11th to see the "Oliver Cromwell" steam locomotive traverse the new section of track joining Sheringham to national trackage.. Pete Waterman will host. Razz

I only heard a part of this on the show today but noticed it was getting heated.. a difficult decision isn't it?
On one hand we have excellent shopping facilities all under one roof but on the other, the store could and does, destroy the local shopping centre and alienate the town's residents..
Of course they predicted all this would happen. It certainly has in our town.. once busy shopping streets are derelict or flats! Evil or Very Mad

My Aunt lives in Holt near Sheringham, it really does have a beautiful high street full of individual shops.. it feels so nice to browse around ( particularly at Christmas - magic! ) and I'd hate to see the same happen there as here..
I'm afraid that the "Tescos" are the future however.. Sad

Beautiful place it is, I often used to go there with my parents when I was a nipper. My personal point of view is that the last thing it needs is a Tesco.
