A second meeting in one evening, back in Chorlton, organised by Unicorn Co-operative Grocery and Women Working Worldwide. Couldn't get in the room, stood peering through the door next to Cllr. Sheila Newman (Labour, Chorlton - and Co-op Party member - who made a good intervention on the insights of the planning committee). Well as you know you can fill a room with a contentious planning application. So the wider implications of how the few supermarkets chains are delivering globalisation, food miles, low wages and mono crop agriculture got lost.
