One set of pictures from Malaysia which might be of especial interest to crippsy_99, taken at a massive megastore near Shah Alam. The thing that struck me most was a strange sense of bewildered familiarity. Wonder if my Clubcard would have worked there? ;-)


aeshna_uk and I then had the thought that Tesco seemed to be shaping up to be a modern day East India Company!

Oh god lord they really are taking over the world!!!
No escaping the tesco value line even on the other side of the world!

You know ive actually always wondered if clubcards would work in the non-uk stores or not, especially my staff discount card if I was ever abroad and visited one!

Agree with you too they do appear to be shaping up to become an East India company type thing! Wont be long before they employ their own personal army without relying upon the crown!

Well, see lonemagpie's comment below.

As for private armies though, given how stretched they are right now, I can't see anyone being able to rely on Crown forces right now... Anyway, modern warfare's too capital intensive - it isn't terribly profitable any more!

yes, your Tesco Clubcard would have worked there...

Tescos have about 400 stores outside the UK - including in Moscow and Beijing
