    i cant see how aldi or lidl would have any problem competing with tesco if they where right next door look at the kantar world panel data tesco have consistently lost market share for the last 5 years and aldi and lidl have grown constantly and most of there sites are within close proximity of supermarkets also the only other chain growing is the coop who are without a doubt building in sandwick and scalloway

    From Who? Would make more sense to put it in a more central location, In or Between Lerwick and Scalloway would be good for foot traffic but they would want business from those who live on the smaller islands too so being near the ferry’s for smaller islands is something they would want. Sandwick is a short drive down from Lerwick but you want to be as close to your more far flung customers as possible so they are more likely to bother and there are more populated islands in the north Fill up the car and go back to the home on smaller island or make deals with more remote shops to stock ow

  9. So What, he is remembered for his transport company and boats were likely crewed by slaves, White people were forced to join the navy at that time regardless of weather they wanted to or not. The slaves Black or otherwise were enslaved by other Africans who are responsible for their enslavement. on the Caribbean plantations countless Irish indentured servants died whist working and were treated more harshly. In fact indentured servants were often just abductees who pirates sold into indenture under false pretenses and indentured servants who finished the time limit sometimes got re-abducte
  10. Are you positive that The Guardian works on a non-profit basis? Available for everyone, funded by readers The Guardian Proves That Free Has Failed this says that they are trying to take in enough to keep the newspaper going not to make a profit

(***admin edit - please only quote the section of text you are responding to rather than the whole discussion ***) https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/27/britain-slave-trade no just didn't think it was a hard to find information I don't read The Guardian..

Did I miss something ? sorry you don't read the guardian probably the best newspaper on the shelf non profit no Rupert murdocks to dictate its direction. Also it must be forgotten the massive part p&o played i
  12. how can you own slaves and not be a slave trader how did you come to have them if not from trade plenty of references on the internet to which companies received payments to free there slaves So, you can't back up your claim then ? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/27/britain-slave-trade no just didn't think it was a hard to find information
