Now it’s illegal to write down prices in a Tesco supermarket: the incredible story of a Guardian’s reporter who was almost arrested just because he was comparing prices. The deputy manager asked some questions we can only call unreasonable, to say the least. The consumer’s right to information and to the protection of economic interests cannot be overthrown by security reasons or to protect alleged “market secrets”. Of course that it is not illegal to write down prices. This kind of behaviour is very questionable and has no legal support. Moreover, we can only say that having the sensation that we are being followed is not the best visiting card a supermarket can have.
Note to self: do not write down prices in supermarkets
