We regularly order Nanny State alcohol free beer. It is always substituted with Indie Pale Ale 4.2%.

Except it isn't, we still get the Nanny State as well as the Price Match Refund ;D

Have a look round and check for Tesco value items which are going to be out of stock for a while. Order these accepting subs and you'll get the high value branded alternative knocked down.

There's a post on the casualuk reddit where someone was sent 6 door mats instead of 6 dining table place mats. Can't post a link but their picture makes it, /r/CasualUK/comments/gq902j/tesco_sent_a_mate_6_doormats_instead_of_6_dining

No sympathy for the locusts' customers. If you're too lazy or weak to do your own shopping, then take or leave whatever you get in substitution.

Vlad , you must be very confident you'll never get Ill and suddenly find yourself unable to do all the things you did . People are not lazy or weak , the are extremely vulnerable to a virus . Shielding is not actually easy especially when it's been for so long. 
But I forgot you like to troll everyone .
