A great spot from Iain Martin this afternoon. Two-faced Chuka gets on his high horse in the Indy to tell us we need to “have a conversation with ourselves” about using supermarkets like Tesco that destroy our high streets, that “we haven’t stopped and thought” about the consequences. Before admitting he shops at Tesco himself.
The hypocrisy doesn’t stop there. Chuka campaigns against a new Tesco being built in his own Streatham constituency, though that hasn’t stopped him from welcoming the development of the new Streatham Hub:
“The Streatham Hub will be fantastic for our area. People have been waiting for the Hub for a very long time and I’m incredibly glad at the progress that has finally been made. Some people questioned whether the development of the Hub would ever happen but now it’s clear that this project will be delivered. It will make a huge difference to our area, be a great facility for local people and it should bring a lot of new trade for local businesses as well.”
