So once again the real shoppers - customers who visit a store and actually do there own shopping are treated differently and are discriminated against compared to the Dot Comedy shoppers who already get the best dates , freshest goods , etc etc . Why should there be a separate policy for these customers ?

Couldn't agree more, Toscos prefer their online customers to rank and file customers.

It stinks.

PMSL The s***bags(EXCUSE THE PUN)

So Paying Drastic 4 million was absorbed by creaming 3.4 million off the public, who he wants to 'shaft a little more every day'  >:D

When the bag charge is 10p presumably they can skim enough off to fund Matt the twa tt;s and Alun Stewart's wages too?

Him, Matt (love my Chester) and Alun Stewart truly are the retail robber barons?

They put Dick Turpin to shame the sheis ters  :D

Tesco takes admin charges from charity plastic bag scheme

Only big grocer to take cut of donations under government initiative

Tesco has taken more than 10 per cent of the proceeds from selling carrier bags for charity to cover administration costs — the only big supermarket to take a cut of donations under a government scheme to reduce plastic bag use.

The grocer generated almost £32m from selling carrier bags, according to government figures on donations made in the year to March, but allocated £3.4m of the sales for its administrative costs.

The cost savings from the far fewer bags being used should be used for admin purposes, not raiding the charity donations.

I assume that now Tesco has got rid of the 5p bag, they will keep all the money from the more expensive, but probably more profitable bag for life. Does anyone out there know if these bags come under the government scheme??

I don't think the Government said the 5P charge had to go to charity , think it was more something the Tesco/morissons/asda , decided to do . or did I miss that part ?

Also the 10p charge money will still go to Charity , but from what I have seen not many people buy them , and most have got used to bringing  the old ones with them , :)
