Tell These Blackmailing Bastards Where To Go, Sainsbury’s…

…or I’ll shop elsewhere in future:

Union chiefs are to seek a meeting with Sainsbury’s bosses after its members raised concerns about the supermarket chain’s refusal to remove The S*n (sic) newspaper from its Merseyside stores.

The absolute cheek! Typical of Self-Pity City, of course…

Franny Joyce, regional organiser for the Unite union, said he was responding to concerns raised by members who worked at the supermarket chain.He added: “Members from Sainsbury’s stores all over Merseyside have requested our support in raising a grievance with the company, regarding a newspaper that they find offensive being sold in its stores.

“One of our members lost a member of their family at Hillsborough, and had had an issue with the newspaper being on sale in the store for years, but didn’t know what to do about it.

“We intend to meet with representatives from the company to discuss a way of trying to resolve this matter.

“The issue has been brought to the fore because of the high-profile campaign to remove The Sun from Merseyside stores since the inquest verdicts.”

If they give in to this, they deserve all they get.

    Everything about this report is so wrong. Surely Saintsbury’s will tell them to sod off. Otherwise, maybe someone will have a meeting with them to complain about having to be served by people who are members of a Union.

    One presumes that customers buy the Sun or it would not be stocked.

    Wasn’t it sainsburys who a few years ago crumpled at first to a muslim employee refusing to sell or handle alcohol at the till?

    I hold no candle for the rag in question (nor any other propaganda sheet come to mention it), but its a legit paper which many people read.

    The irony of true fascism is lost on the left.

    “Resolve this issue”

    Meaning: “Get our own way without compromise”

    But I find the presence of both the Mirror and the Guardian offensive. I don’t however stamp my feet and demand that they are ‘unstocked’.

    Perhaps I should…

    Hilsborough is a tricky subject. On the one hand, the crowds were riotous and difficult to control, thus barriers were put up. On the other, crowds pushed in from outside the stadium to crush those at the front.

    Were there mistakes made by the police? Probably. On the other, if those same crowds had a history of behaving themselves the police would have trusted them to act appropriately.

    Trying to ban the sun on this principle is absurd. It just allows people to deflect responsibility.
