would you prefer to tie their hands until they go bankrupt and everyone gets the hoof? you need to decide between commy and nazi Rich
You have totally missed the point and that point is for years they have been increasing there profit year by year, not a whiff of the company being in trouble.

where's the fake news emoji ffs?

they lost £6.4bn in 2015 and in the next two years made 300m on a turnover of.. wait for it, >110bn
last year they did much better but this is still a fiercely competitive segment, they have a responsibility to their shareholders to ensure they have a short, medium and long term plan

it's capitalism. at least they usually pay their tax .. their staff will find other jobs i'm sure

There's a huge difference between a drop in profits and a loss, and that dip is partly explained by having to pay out £235 as a fine and costs to the serious frauds office. What an honest company.

there are laws around employment and redundancy but ultimately the market is pretty bouyant at the mo

tesco are no doubt angels compared to the big yank corporate exploitation wave we're being hit by.. amazon dodge tax, uber and deliveroo dont employ...

as a fairly hard right winger i'd have thought you'd be all for corporate domination and the free market/low regulation

Not at all. I'm for building a better future for us all and our children, but above all fairness in the way all employees are treated, who said I'm a fairly hard right winger? I know the large chap, but what does he know. Nothing about me and my politics he just makes it up as he goes along.
Corporate domination, no nationalisation yes of essential industry and services, British steel production and the railways etc.
Free market yes but with distinct boundaries and enforceable laws, so when two years ago we were told that Marmite was going to cost us more because of Brexit and the cost of raw materials that incidentally all sourced in the UK.
And lastly fair regulation to protect the UK and it's people is as essential as the air we breath.
So what am I now a right wing lefty?

Nice to get sort of name checked. Thanks

It's true Dickie, it's hard to get a handle on your politics - most of the time you come across as a hard-right gammonista (not just me who's noticed - Notts is onboard too), then all of a sudden you go all socialist. Well, as long as the downtrodden masses in question aren't of an ethnic persuasion or any other group the Mail or Express has a beef with - Muslims, immigrants, refugees, millennials, snowflakes, unemployed etc.

You're an enigma - you can exist at either extreme of the spectrum, but it does have to be an extreme. The only thing that seems to link it all together is it's something to moan about and keep your anger with the world on the boil.

You should donate yourself to medical science.

Anyway, how are you enjoying this week's going's on in Brussels and Westminster? Hard to see why anyone wouldn't prefer the EU running our country rather than British politicians eh?

Rich - can I recommend reading Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About The World - And Why Things Are Better Than You Think
Amazon Amazon

I'm very cynical and lots of things get me down and make me angry. This book gave an interesting different view based on modern statistics.

If you stop businesses reshaping their business to reflect changes in the marketplace you will end up with a state controlled economy and you only have to look at the former Eastern Bloc countries to work out what would be the result.

There are laws to protect against unfair dismissal, discrimination etc. but genuine redundancy is excluded.

Tesco in particular is under massive pressure from Aldi and Lidl and their margins are wafer thin. We supply Aldi and they sell our product at a gross margin of between 1% and 10%. Are you going to tell the consumer that they can't shop in Aldi and Lidl because the effect of the price war they instituted is resulting in job losses in Tesco.

Of course you could just be trolling.......................................... .
