Yet again on BBC Watchdog tonight there was a story about supermarkets ripping off customers. Yet again, the supermarkets failed to turn up to answer the complaints and instead put forward a spokesman from the British Retail Consortium.
A few days ago there was a story about supermarkets driving dairy farmers out of business. Again, not a single person from the supermarket chains would turn up and instead a spokesman from the British Retail Consortium.
When there was a positive story a few weeks ago about supermarket clothing on Watchdog, guess who turned up ? All the supermarkets !
Yes, whenever there is bad news the supermarkets can't be seen for dust.
Well done at least to Anne Robinson who clearly pointed out on Watchdog tonight that the British Retail Consortium is not in any way an independent body and is paid for by the supermarkets.
