It is not about limiting choice.To me it is about building a whacking great big supermarket on Hibbert Lane in the middle of peoples homes and possibly putting the local shops out of business.The yes people that are spying are out of Marple so why do some make out they can't afford to shop elsewhere.I wish they would make their minds up Roll Eyes

People can't fail to notice that a lot of people who shout I am on a low income have top of the range buggies for their children and dress them in so called designer clothes.So I think the clothes section in Asda will be off limits,The very thought!People with children are not on a low income,Child care vouchers ,child benefit,tax credits for all plus whatever else.So if people say they are on a low income,a lot of us wouldn't mind a bit of that.People think they should have it all. Roll Eyes

I disagree.
I am on a low income. My child's pram was a gift which i have had she was born. It is falling apart but i can't afford to get a new one. My child wears whatever i have passed down to me or clothes from the charity shop. I would like to shop at Asda for my child's clothes as I find M&CO so expensive. I'm guessing you are basing you opinions on seeing a few people on low incomes and judging everyone based on that.

It's not just people on low incomes who would like a new supermarket in Marple. I know many people across income brackets who are for it, or are on the fence and would like to see what the real plans are before making up their minds - many of these were instinctively against the idea before being put off by the increasingly militant tone of the MIA campaign.

Let's not get into this class war thread of debate again. People will take offence, there'll be posts getting deleted and all that rubbish.

I have noticed this too and strongly agree.

JMC why do you feel that it's hypocritical   MIA are against a supermarket on Hibbert Lane not against supermarkets !  I have to shop outside of Marple as all my family are veggie and the Coop and Iceland despite numerous phone calls do not carry a good range of veggie stuff.


You must have quite a hefty phone bill? Factoring in calls to the council too etc.

Regardless, there is some hypocrisy here, I don't eat meat but don't find that I have to resort to supermarkets for my meals, I'm quite well served by the green grocers in the centre, you know, one of the independents that we are striving to save if a supermarket moves in.

Sareena ,I said a lot not all,There are some fantastic pre-loved buggies around and you will probably find higher quality childrens stuff in a charity shop than Asda,Tesco or Primark.No Sareena I don't consider anyone with children to be on a low income.the government sees to that wether a person is employed or not.I am on a low income as I don't have children to bump my income up.Now if only I had four children I could shop anywhere I liked within reason.

I am opposed to the supermarket, not a member of the MIA. Having children does not necessarily bump your income up. Your continued attempts to make this some sought of class issue are having a very negative are the type of comments that have a negative effect on the NO campaign. And seeing as my humorous but harmless remark on another topic was deleted, I hope your condescending post is removed at the same speed as mine, before another tirade of insults is exchanged.

Cripes I purchase all my veg in Marple and the majority of my shopping but my family do not eat fish or meat so if the Coop and Iceland don't supply a variety of tofu, quorn or the like I have to purchase it elsewhere (not ready meals)    Before anyone says you will be able to get it at ASDA ! Wrong ASDA does not really offer a great deal of veggie stuff, Morrisons in my opinion is the best place for veggie choice
And about my phone bill I am on free local calls but may have a problem when I start phoning Leeds lol omg lol  Grin

What is it with all these veggies? Do we live in Marple or a big hippy commune?

You can easily get tofu or quorn from Co-op, you can even get quorn from Spar at Rosehill.

Sorry but why does everyone assume that if people write something against the YES campaign that they are a member of MIA ? Anyway it's all getting so so childish and I am one of the worst culprits
