View Full Version : Interesting segment from Guardian article on Tesco

I had an Ely moment in the poultry aisle of Elmer's End Tesco. I'm not now, nor will I ever be, a vegetarian, but the doomed and melancholy air that hangs around pallid rows of naked, trussed and oh-so-very-dead chickens is an inescapable reminder of the fundamental futility of existence. But when they are being piled high and selling for less than 1 a pound, it's hard not to intuit that something, somewhere has indeed gone terribly wrong.

Could that be any more depressing?
Good read, though.
How come the writer says she'll never be vegetarian - can anyone know that?

No, I don't think they can. I've had at least two friends tell me they could never go vegetarian, and then do exactly that within a year :D

Crumbs. Elmers End Tesco is near me. It used to be my local supermarket before I moved.

It's the living embodyment of trash culture food shopping.

Yes, you can go vegetarian. I believe you're strong enough, and wise enough.
