New Tesco On Pentonville Road Leads To End Of Civilisation
Following on from my last entry…
On my way to work this morning, through the unexpected extra snow* that proves conclusively that global warming is a Marxist plot by those who wish to set up a world government and steal our freedom, I spotted a new Tesco being readied for opening on Pentonville Road.
I was genuinely shocked – surely there are enough Tescos already? One of my favourite bits of the Hitchhiker’s Guide books is the cautionary tale of the planet with slightly too many shoe shops, where it became economically impossible to justify building anything other than shoe shops – eventually the entire civilisation collapsed. I suspect we’re getting close to the Tesco Event Horizon.
There’s a massive new student accomodation complex on Pentonville Road, with big shiny posters by the entrance of models pretending to be aspirational students doing aspirational things like owning iphones and not drinking cider. I’m going to assume that’s the market this latest, potentially civilisation-ending Tesco is going for.
* I was really proud that I’d managed not to blog about the snow. Bollocks.
