Re: Sainsbury's

Ironically the final comment has pertinence given the front story page in this week's Mercury ("We're cross about crossing"). Indeed. I really hope common sense prevails with respect to the crossing and that the opinions of a tiny, selfish* minority are not allowed to unduly influence the...
