    Don't know if you get them outside the UK.

    You mean the bags they deliver to you that say "clothing you give us will be used in the UK, or abroad either as "worn again" clothes or to raise funds to help the poor"?

    No, the chaps at the supermarket who pack your bags for you.

    To collect money for aids, or the local puntsphere team, or to get wee Bobby his own dialysis machine, or the national front.

    The ones you are talking about are rarely charities nowadays. They are normally businesses, however much the leaflets suggest otherwise.

    If you go to a decent supermarket you can get everything in the same place.

    I don't buy into that idea of everything in the same place = better than looking for things in different places. In the old days there was Butchers shop next door to a Bakery and the post office next to that.

    I can't see what was wrong with the local high street in the first place that needed politicians sticking their noses in & Putting local businesses out of work.

    Supermarkets help poor people to be able to buy more stuff.

    Therefore, they're good. Fact.

    You consider Morrisons and Tesco Express to be local business then.

    We get the "big shop" at the supermarket but get other things from the wee shops based on goodliness.

    Zod however lives in Trumpton, where the Baker is beside the Butcher and then there is the Post Office.

    I wish i did live in trumpton sometimes.

    No, I don't consider Morrisons and Tesco Express to be local business. My point is, "Getting everything in the same place" has become popular because of the rise of the supermarket, which has put many local shops out of the game.
