Sir Terry Leahy, ex supermarket boss sitting on a "Desert Island Disc" has said he just loves boarded-up shops in the high streets of Britain because it means more customers for his beloved supermarket and the death of the "little shops and their owners!"
He even claims that Darwin is to blame because it is only the strong that survive and the slow death of high street shops is a natural process called evolution.
Little shopkeepers hope that Napolean will eventually prove Sir Terry wrong and prove that Britain is a nation of shop-keepers and not greedy, profit-making supermarkets who offer punters their cheap products and claim 95% of the market.
In the meantime Sir Terry is enjoying his trip to a desert island and hopes that on the island there will be enough little shops who provide a super, personal service to keep the arrogant, multi-millionaire Sir alive during his stay there!
By the way, the imaginary island where Sir Terry is staying was once frequented by Charles Darwin; now we can blame him for everything!
