Sir: Thank you for the juxtaposition of the superstores and 'pig estate' articles. If only opponents of superstores could site a pig farm (of comparable scale) alongside each superstore, to act as a symbol of the greed of retailers, developers and customers. The pigs could use up the fresh food that the stores must waste, while the stores might get some decent bacon instead of that watery plastic stuff. Further study will show if bent supermarket trolleys (immobile against the strongest push) would make suitable pig scratching posts.

Yours faithfully,


Horsham, West Sussex
