Waitrose has apologised for selling…
Rat poison disguised as chocolate bars? ‘Non-essential items’ (as defined by the shop staff and delivery workers you don’t remember electing to pass such judgement)?
…The S*n newspaper at its Formby branch.
Yes, a national newspaper. That in a childish display of exactly why the place is a byword for childish tantrums and self-pity, the ‘Echo’ won’t print in full…
After concerns the Three Tuns Lane branch had begun to sell The S*n were raised, the ECHO contacted Waitrose to ask what lay behind the decision.
What a pity Waitrose didn’t have the balls to say ‘Because we can. And people want to buy it. Now fuck off, or we’ll stop selling your rag..’.
In response, a spokeswoman said: “We apologise for any offence caused – this was delivered in error and should not be stocked by our Formby shop.”
Don’t blame me when they decide you shouldn’t sell something else, then. You’ve given them an inch, so they will – eventually – take a mile.
