Slough takes on giants

Slough has just successfully judicially reviewed the government in relation to the business growth money scheme (the government had wrongly refused to pay out extra funds to slough after it facilitated the growth of two major new businesses in Slough (Tesco Extra in Slough and Royal Mail sorting office in Colnbrook). And goodness only knows we ought to get SOMETHING positive as recompense for being forced to shop in the largest tescos in the solar system.

Also, much to my delight, the Competition Commission has ordered that Tesco downs tools on construction on its old site down the road from the gargantuan Tescos, whilst it conducts an inquiry. The complaint is that Tesco is hoarding the land and deliberately building units so small on it that the occupants will not effectively be able to compete with Super-Tesco. No? Tesco behaving in such a way? Unthinkable. Pah! 

And to complete the hat trick Slough is also still battling the Government about its population statistics, complaining that it has been given insufficient funding to cope with the infux of immigrants, particularly Poles who are arriving in Slough.
