In a blog entitled “Every Lidl helps” that I posted on 24th November 2009, I expounded the view that we are all due Tesco a debt of gratitude.
That debt has just become greater.
By banning customers who fall out of bed and into their stores, Tesco are doing us all a favour.
For every pyjama wearer who might tempt you to turn your head, there are 99 who will turn your stomach.
I don’t know which wag it was who once observed that Tesco were created to keep the riff-raff out of Waitrose, but I just wonder where they will sleep-walk to next.
Maybe they will revert to shopping online – providing they can get their computers out of sleep mode.
