Tesco sales hit £1 billion a week.

Tesco weekly sales hit £1 billion
Thirty years after it first broke the £1 billion worth of sales a year mark, Tesco is reporting sales of £1 billion a week.
Its annual results show the company achieved sales of £53 billion and profits of £3 billion.

Seeing as how £1 in every £7 is spent by UK consumers in a Tesco, {probably nearer to £1 in every £6 by now} Why not just hand over the entire budget / Treasury to Tesco management.

There is nothing they don't know about cutting waste, getting the best deal,global markets
currency hedging, new technology, efficiency and turning a profit.
And the employees rate them highly too.

I'm not sure if you are joking or have hit on an idea of genius magnitude.

Leahy is a remarkable businessman

I am told he never looks to blame others for his own mistakes: no small character-trait

They will own the banks too in a few years. Ideally placed to sweep up the mess made in retail banking.
Tesco have more branches than than the big four [or is that 3 now?] put together.

Tuscan Tony said...

Quite. Which is probably why the gummint likes to stir the masses up against them using cod-eco arguments.

Sebastian Weetabix said...

Leahy for PM, if you ask me. At least he knows how to run things. Every little helps when tackling this spendthrift government.

CityUnslicker said...

Leahy is a big friend of the Tories and hates Labour - which is nice!

Demetrius said...

Remember, it all depends on their distribution system. And what does that depend on? Also, think of an orchestra that plays wonderfully well, but only when the string section is in tune, so what happens when a government or the EU replaces the violins with spoons?

Not so sure that the staff love Tesco, Bill.

There is a staff association, which flatteringly takes Tesco's slogan "Every Little Helps" as its title. Except that they miss off the "E" at the beginning.

Pogo said...

The simple fact is that Leahy is a "pro" - he's worked for Tesco since "Adam was a lad" and as well as being a damned-good businessman, knows the business absolutely inside-out.

Compare and contrast with the shower of superannuated student-union politicos nominally in charge of UK PLC, who are aided and abbetted by the "cult of the amateur" civil service.

Speaks volumes....

Bill Quango MP said...

Smoking: AS the ever gracious Gordon brown once said, "All our policies are genius." neglecting to add, 'except the mad ones.'

He is a good leader, and I am one who considers Tesco as having far too much reach and power already, but look at the success. They are planning to double in size in 10 years.

They are well known for getting their full entitlement out of every deal. If you work a 4 hour shift at Tesco you will work for 4 hours. If you work 4 hours at Next, you may be able to get away with doing very little for part of the day..
There is no dosing at Tesco.Its extremely well time managed. That causes a certain resentment.
But for a retail worker the benefits are massive. Pension/share scheme/proper training/ management progression structure/ subsidised canteen/ free parking/ discount after 'x' years/health and death insurance/ first pick of the sell off foods/ flexi hours and on and on.

A worker for Robert Dyas say,would probably get none of those.

With the increasing popularity of yahoo poker chips as a virtual currency in zynga texas holdem poker many hackers have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned myspace poker chips. All over the internet forums are littered with posts by innocent people who have had their chips stolen. Nothing is as sorry state as logging to Facebook or MySpace to play a few games of poker only to find that someone has already been in your account and your poker chips are gone.[/color]


[color=#333]Keep these basic things in mind to protect your facebook poker chips:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a sexy girl in poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

Be careful about what you download: Serious online gamers are looking for cheats or hacks for the games they play in order to give them an edge on their opponents. Poker is no different and there are many websites on the internet touting facebook poker cheats and hacks for those brave enough to download and install them. But many of these so called facebook poker cheats have viruses or trojan programs. The moment you install any of these your computer is at the risk of attacks by the creator of the program. He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Theives send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the theif who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by phisher, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behin it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips.
