The 1997 landslide victory of 'New Labour' saw Tesco make donations to the Labour party and again in 2003. The past 13 years have seen a dramatic increase in the number and size of stores around not only the UK but the world. In China for example a nice little loop hole was found whereby they can have more than one store on the same street whereas Chinese chains cannot. I am also sure David Cameron has recently been to China and found himself stuck at a checkout. He should have used the automated till. Tesco Direct. Tesco Express. Tesco this, Tesco that. Even the great Banksy has taken a swipe at the Tesco brand. Do we think that the Tesco Corporation gave Tony Blair a load of money in a 'scratch our backs and we'll scratch yours' nudge and wink?
