"Tesco starts second hand car business. Supermarket group says Tesco cars will cut out the middlemen – and offer Clubcard points"

harrisonic along with most of the Guardian community won't be heading over to Tesco: "Of course there'll be a middleman – called Tesco! Cars won't be any cheaper, just you'll pay the margin to bloody Tesco. AND they'll be twisting your arm to buy finance, a warranty, insurance, accessories. My idea of hell."

The Telegraph have covered this as well:

keepcalm is more optimistic:"I wish Tesco could take over the civil service and many other areas of the public sector. Tesco is tightly managed and provides a level of service that most ordinary people find acceptable. What would be wrong with a Tesco hospital or school?"

While colingillies says: "Can nobody kill the beast? Tesco is the true unacceptable face of capitalism.

Tesco are in the same league as McDonalds, Starbucks and Sky kill the competion and then charge what you like as the consumer will have no choice."
