"Gaaaaah! Legitimate business competition! GAAAAH!"

"Gaaaah! Free market economics! GAAAAH!"

Poor. No "anger". No "fury", no "devastated" etc. No Glum Councillor pointing at those cracked paving slabs. Mr Foldedarms not identified.

Blyth quote: "...horrible and like being on Death Row".
(I'm not saying anything in response).

There's a "Get Carter" joke here somewhere...anybody know where it is?

Bugger. In fairness, the real story (not exactly well reflected in the copy) was that the two businessmen pictured were being offered a pittance for their properties by Morrison's agents, with a take-it-or-leave-it-we're-coming-to-knock-your-office-down-anyway attitude.
