Tesco contributes to alcohol abuse

Grabbed for a fiver at Tesco

I like a drink as much as everyone , but in the current climate of alcohol consumption, I found this ridiculous. Aren't stores supposed to be showing responsibilty towards alcohol?

Blockade conditions were apparently under way at Tesco supermarkets yesterday as myriads of shoppers fought to grab crates of lager for a fiver each.

Some stores reported pandemonium as customers emptied the shelves of Carlsberg Export at the rate of up to 100 boxes an hour. The price of beer was reduced from £14.99 for 18 bottles to just a fiver.

No alcohol left at Tesco

In good-old Kidsgrove, in my native Stoke-on-Trent, one shop-worker said, “It was unbelievable. We just had a mad rush this morning and by 11am there was nothing left.”
Are they mad? Tesco must now rate as number one contributor to alcohol abuse in Britain. I wonder how many headaches they've caused
