ID Cards By The Back Door
Our old friends in Tesco get a mention again today on this site. This time they are helping Nanny to impose id cards via the back door.
Just ask James Earls, a gentleman of almost 60 years of age, who uses a walking frame.
He popped into his local Tesco Express recently, in St Annes Lancashire, to purchase a packet of fags.
Can you guess what happened next children?
Yes, that's right, Tesco insisted that he produce proof (ie id) that he was over 18 years old.
When he couldn't provide the proof, the staff refused to serve him.
Was this a single incident of dim witted stupidity by a member of staff?
This policy is 100% applicable for all customers in that store, no exceptions.
A spokesman for Tesco said:
"The store has introduced a policy, on a trial basis, to require ID from all customers wishing to buy age-restricted products to help prevent underage sales.
We will of course keep this under review and would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience this may cause."
Tesco, doing their bit to help Nanny push through her much hated id card scheme.
