I see the Youtube video of demonstrators at Tesco Westwood. The guy stage managed it to get his clip of the nasty security asking him to leave. Which on their own property they are perfectly within their rights to do so . So now having got his clip he has rushed home to put it on the Internet. I think some would bet he was running to the local Labour party office to upload it but obviously I have no evidence of this.I worked for myself for most of my life in the lower end of the pay scale often working for less than what would have been regarded as a minimum wage and happy to earn something to provide for my wife and children. Now I ask how many of these demonstrators were actually employee’s at Thanet Earth? My guess is not many if any. My other question is why are they here at this time? Which entirely by coincidence, coincides with the local election? Now is this a coincidence or is it by design? I have no way of knowing but being the cynic that I am I think how would this staged demonstration benefit anyone locally, and the only people it would benefit is someone in or seeking office onto the local council, because it is not helping Thanet Earth who stand at the whim of the supermarket. If the boss of Tesco Westwood stops stocking a locally grown tomato I don’t see other local growers filling the shelf space. If Tesco and other supermarkets stop stocking Thanet Earth tomato’s they wont make a profit and it will be cheaper to do the same as Pfizers and close the site down.
