Sweets show hypocrisy

23 August, 2007

RE: OLN, Aug 10, Adult Appeal. I write to give full backing to this letter.

I agree with everything the manager stated.

The sweets we now stock show sheer hypocrisy. And as a mother and grandmother there is no way I would encourage my children to enter an off-licence to purchase sweets.

We only work here and have no say in what we stock, but I find it disgusting that most of the time what we should have in stock is many times out of stock.

But kids' sweets are always in stock and they should not be here.

Richard Hemming MW: beware inverse snobbery

Few things can bring communal pleasure so intimately as wine. Apart from a hot tub, perhaps. Sport can trigger mass jubilation, film gives us shared empathy, but wine has a nigh-unique ability to bestow conviviality among us through a shared bottle ľ which makes it especially galling that we spend so much time divided over it.
