1:19 pm today was the exact mid point from when the result that the Great British public had decided to leave the EU and the time 11pm March 29th 2019 that Democracy will be delivered.

Happy days.

Poll: Next major war involving UK against a super power ?

The Countdown begins. on 21:31 - Oct 4 with 537 viewsCatullus

Tesco and Asda have been cutting in store staff for ages, the number of tills has dropped markedly as they use self scan.

Lisa's point about Aldi and Lidl, that the profits get returned to Germany.......doesn't that also prove a point about something, many companies have relocated to cheaper paying countries with grants from the EU, thousands of jobs have gone East, yet a business saying it's opening new stores here is bad?
The EU is against state aid also, it prefers the free market, prefers there aren't nationalised industries yet the UK has lost billions in profit through privatisation. Our trains, water, gas and electricity are owned by foreign concerns or rich people who live offshore and hide their profits.
All those privately owned train services yet the government has to pay for the network, is that because private concerns don't want their profits gobbled up by paying for the tracks they run on or because the Tories are following the ususal route of protecting their rich friends and their profit margins?
Maybe I'm just a whacked out conspiracy theorist but hardly any of our politicians do anything worthwhile for the majority and I doubt if Corbyn and friends would be any different.
Politics is like the bible, it has more contradictions than Clasie accuses me of. Those who believeth in me (St Jeremy or Mother Theresa) or in politicians generally may as well go sit in church for all the good it does.

Just my opinion, but WTF do I know anyway?

I haven’t missed the point. You basically said earlier that for every job Aldi create, someone else loses a job. You’ve got absolutely no evidence to back up that statement. You then go on and say Aldi is bad for the economy, which is also bull**it.

Oh for God’s sake, it’s not difficult.

Everyone buys a certain amount of food.

If you currently shop in Tesco and an Aldi opens, do you:

(a) buy what you used to buy in Tesco and also buy the same again in Aldi? Your family now eats twice as much as it used to,

Or

(b) stop buying in Tesco and go to Aldi instead? Your family eats the same amount as it used to.

That’s the evidence.

And I said that there were positives and negatives re the overall economic impact.

Aldi overall (can’t find a UK split) have published revenue of €53bn (in 2010 - notoriously difficult to find recent revenue figures but will be far higher now) with 165,000 employees (2015 numbers).

Tesco have revenue (again overall) of Β£56bn (2017) with 476,000 employees (2017).

Enormous difference.

If shoppers move to Aldi, they wont use Tesco online presumably.


Doesn't Jango's press release provide the information?

"Aldi contributed to the generation of over Β£8.5bn in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to the UK economy in 2016"

Sounds like sales to me.

"Aldi supported 146,000 direct and indirect jobs"

Not sure what indirect jobs means, but it all seems roughly in line with Tescos.

What about the evidence that proves that people shop in both Aldi and Tesco’s?

And you didn’t say there were positive and negatives originally. You said it was obvious for everyone to see that it would have a net reduction in jobs and a net reduction in the economy.

Automation is a massive issue.

Many people striking today at McDonalds for a higher wage will end up losing their jobs to an automated process.

Many jobs at logistics warehouses (Amazon) for example, could be replaced by robot pickers. I’m not sure anyone has yet worked out how to pay large numbers of people to β€˜not work’ when that happens.

There will have to, at some point, be a conversation with Amazon about them paying enough taxation to provide a subsistence wage for the people they don’t employ any more. It’s a whole new economic model.

Nope, GDP figures include suppliers as well.

Up to date figures would make the discrepancy between the two even more stark.

Yes, but they buy the same overall, just split their shop. You don’t buy more food than your family eats do you, wherever you buy it from. So overall, the anount is the same, just differently split.

And yes, it results in a reduction in the overall jobs and economy. But I did say in answer to your question about whether it was β€˜bad’ that there were pros and cons.

You do realise that people don’t just buy food from these stores? Non food items are a huge part of their turnover.

Nonsense! Tesco direct closing had no affect on in store sales so totally irrelevant to this conversation.

Yes, lets have as much immigration as we can, I'm sure it won't overwhelm the already overwhelmed NHS, education system or housing. I'm sure those in favour will deny any negative impact and when crime continues to rise, welfare payments rise and homelessness increases we can all wonder why.
We need sensible immigration, encouraging a massive population rise is a path to disaster.

I think I posted the formula for GBP earlier in this thread.

GDP=Consumer spending + Private Investment + Government spending + Net exports (- Net imports).

So sub-suppliers of goods and services to Tesco are included in their numbers (sales and cost of goods sold), otherwise there could be multiple levels of double counting.

100%

Her god is money and that is why she has sold her self to London in the pursuit for it.

She dreads the possibility of the rest of the UK having a bit of the pie .

"I am alright Jack" just like the other remoaners.

Don't get me started on her fat ass although I agree it's big enough to get her ugly head up.

I've been trying to think of a light-hearted way of calling out PikeyPaul and Peenemunde on their misogyny, but I'm stumped. Perhaps it's because misogyny isn't really that funny.
