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.
