We were delighted to see this debate kick off in the media not so along ago and now the debate has created a storm on twitter.
What’s it all about? Misleading prices from large supermarkets. A few months ago the BBC’s Panorama programme did an expose on supermarket deals and since then under the Twitter hashtag #wineripoff, twitter users have started naming and shaming some of the half price deals by posting photographs.
The Guardian’s wine critic Fiona Beckett, who was instrumental in getting the debate going on Twitter, was quoted saying “the scale of reductions was deeply misleading”. She said it “wasn’t that the offers weren’t worth snapping up”, but that the original prices advertised were too high.
