SAVING THE WORLD IN MORRISONS
The wife who is well into rescuing the planet from its own greed and stupidity-an obsessive recycler, No to GM rain forest; Fair Trade even if it tastes foul, ditto Organics has now carried her campaign into the heart of enemy country as represented here by supermarkets, specifically Sir Morrisons and the Coop. Apart from verbals about the lack of organic stuff(hidden away as if they are objects of shame, rather than of desire) it is the aggressive no more plastic bags at the checkout which is turning heads amongst those lackeys of perverted consumerism: the check out ladies (sex optional-'woman as embracing man' to paraphrase Sir Winston)She not only brings her own cavernous shopping bad (not made from recycled materials but 'night glo' orange stuff) but also elderly (some from the days of Safeways) plastic bags so as she can sweep aside with a muffled snarl the pristine Sir Morrisons' ones. With the foe discomfited the campaign enters a new offensive: removal of plastic wrapping from purchased goods and dumping same with a few well chosen words of explanation at check out. Tills start closing all over the Coop when the wife is on a shopping rampage and is thought to be heading for a stormy exit-one trolley full of goods, the other, discarded wrappings.
Indeed the Coop is thinking of installing a special check out to deal with planet savers favouring direct action:Basket Cases Only
And Sir Ms? What does the young lady on the tannoy announce when when the wife is 'in store'another reason for not shopping in Morrisons'
( it is her fervent wish!)
