I Wonder If Laura Leeks Voted For Brexit?

Laura is refused free parking in Tesco because she bought baby milk formula:

“I am delighted that you as a company support breast feeding. However, I cannot accept that your policies lead to your staff shaming women who, for whatever reason, are using baby formula. I also cannot accept the comparison of formula feeding with the harmful effects of smoking,” she wrote on the firm’s Facebook page.

“I remain sad that I could not solely breast feed [my child]. However, I am reassured that, due to the nutritious formula, he is happy, healthy and growing well. I do not, however, need to be ‘guilt-tripped’ by a Tesco employee who has absolutely no knowledge of my circumstances,” she added. “I applaud your commitment to support breastfeeding. However, this does not mean you should abuse women who do not breast feed.”

Booo, Tesco! BOOOOOOO…..


The Department of Health said the relevant rules are enshrined in UK law as a result of an EU regulation on the sale of baby formula. “These rules are currently in place because of EU law,” a spokesman said. “But our Great Repeal Bill means that when we leave the EU, laws such as these will be debated and controlled by the UK Parliament.”

Well, Laura, looks like you chose the wrong target for your virtue signalling ire. I wonder if you’ll be apologising so publicly, too?

    It’s the ‘bedroom tax’ all over again; the ‘free parking’ is not a universal right but a discretionary bonus granted to certain customers by the store. If you don’t like the policy, choose another supermarket in a less central location.

    As for ‘shaming’, it’s the best false syllogism I’ve seen all week;

    Tesco says tobacco sales do not qualify for parking vouchers.
    Tesco says formula milk does not qualify for parking vouchers.
    Tesco is ‘comparing formula feeding with the harmful effects of smoking’.

    (Spare a thought for the future teachers of this little mite; if this public display is anything to go by, his mother may well be making her presence felt at the school gates a few years hence.)

    I have never been to, or even seen, a branch of Tesco where you had to pay to park (unless you go over the three hour limit or whatever).

    Is this a South of England thing? When did it happen?

    Why does anyone still go to those stores AT ALL?

    So many questions…
