But what about Bill's and Mays and other red cells in the lifeblood of our Town? Suzanne Wolf is almost like a fourth emergency service to me and Flint have some lovely napkins for only 40 pounds each. Proof if any were needed that cheap stuff isn't always poor quality!

My fear would be that the expansion of tescos means more of the high street chains disappear and all that is left in lewes high street and cliffe are the expensive independents and cafes. With the National Park it's not long before there's a few horrible tacky 'gift' shops selling all manner of cheap tat to tourists, then you end up with a town that's pickled in its own history and is so pretty and protected it becomes like Arundel - very pictureseque and no real industry or reason for being...except tescos, whose profits provide no benefit to the town, apart from employing a few poorly paid saps. And so on. Any true Lewesian would be opposing the expansion if they loved their town, because it will ultimately lead to its destruction as a vibrant working and living place.

Aren't Tesco also responsible for WWII, aids, the lack of public transport and the recent death of my pet hamster too? I heard they employ wild squirrels in Mozambique and forcibly take baby girls from their mothers in Nepal. Shocking.

I've heard on the grapevine that they run their emergency power generator on the tears of orphaned children.

I've heard that Tesco don't give a toss, coz when the application is Refused they'll get it on Appeal and receive costs against the council (i.e. us council tax payers) for a 6 figure sum! So if its refused tonight it'll cost us a fortune in Council Tax!

Why are we having a go at the independant whatever they sell? isn't it the nationals that are the ruin of Lewes all the big money is taken out of the town the only good thing is they employ a few folk. I say praise these independant retailers. I dont slag of giles leisure jut because they sell expensive swimming pools. I have no need for anything they sell but that doesn't mean they should move away does it.

I think that County Hall moving hundreds of staff to Polegate will have a greater effect on the town than Tesco selling cheap socks.
