The latest General Election has proved beyond reasonable doubt that the world has gone to hell in a handcart, certainly as far as UTC is concerned. So his interest was piqued by a survey from research specialists GlobalData who, for reasons that remain unclear, were asking shoppers leaving supermarkets who they intended to vote for in the run up to the election.
Interestingly, the majority of Tesco and Sainsbury’s shoppers were pro-Conservative while the majority of Asda and Morrisons shoppers were pro-Labour. Even more interestingly, Lidl and Aldi shoppers have swung from being mostly pro-Labour to now being mostly pro-Conservative.
No prizes for guessing which party you were likely to vote for if you live near a swanky Waitrose…
A spokesman from GlobalData commented something or other…but UTC wasn’t paying attention by then.
