Cant believe that Sainsburys was so publically rubbished on R4 this evening by yours truely - especially as it's the poshest supermarket in the North. FYI the only Waitrose store North of Henley on Thames in a single venture into Sheffield that some have considered misguided plus the soon to be opened store in footballers-wives land of Altringham Cheshire this Autumn. So the rest of us Shire-dwellers make to with the orange carriers and think that is "posh enough" - so being referred to as scum wasn't quite Queensbury Rules - even if the intent was tongue in cheek ??

I know it's because I'm an American, but I have to say I'm very pleased I didn't understand a word of your post.

Really? Wow.

The comment on UK radio 4 Just a Minute http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00lycz6 - (6 days left to listen) Waitrose is a food store that is for the uber-riche and Sainsburys is a good quality food store - bit like an classy Wallmart for families.

well, if it was in just a minute then:
a) I didn't noticed it
b) maybe it shouldn't be taking all too serious, comedy is part of the game.

ooops - well thats me corrected - sos - but then Harrogate isn't quite Blackpool - I guess a visit to the Turkish baths and steam room is a bit more classy than munching a stick of rock on the pleasure beach. So Harrogate deserves a Waitrose I guess and it keeps people like me in my place (below the stairs) LOL
