For me, the shameful destruction of Vaux was the obscene face of capitalism, but I had thought the debacle over the site was over when the government backed the Sunderland Arc, but now it seems Tesco might take this to the High Court, so we shouldn't hold our breath.

What are the views of others on this development (in every sense)? Who is to blame? The decision to sell the land to Tesco in the first place showed how tiny-minded Sunderland Council is - the best piece of real estate in Sunderland and all we can come up with is "let's build a supermarket".

On the other hand, I certainly won't be shopping at Tesco again after, in my opinion, its apparent disdain for the people of Sunderland, sitting on this land for five years.

And what are people's views on the Sunderland Arc? I find it odd that a company set up to promote the regeneration of Sunderland has its website built by a firm on Tyneside; if they don't believe Sunderland has the skills to build a website, then how are they going to encourage others to invest in the city?

Any thoughts?

When the government always backs tesco it makes you wonder if they have shares in the place. Or something worse <yikes>
Could it be an experiment, if you like the approved chemical that has been added to the food in the disguise of an E number, you will become robotic and like the taxes the government come out with .

Do not shop Do not shop they will exterminate exterminate <in Daleks voice>

Tesco does seem to be taking over everywhere. I never said it was an answer. You could say it was another question.
You could think of nothing to say, so it was more than the insult you put.

I think what you said was funny ABL. I am sure someone in the government probably gets the odd backhander to turn a blind eye to Tescos spreading over the British Isles.

Are you looking forward to the new touchy feely Doctor Who tonight as oppose to the naf 70's version.
