Tesco Has Double Standards As Well As Double Clubcard Points


Not allowed in Tesco

A Jedi Knight was asked to leave a branch of Tesco' because he was wearing a hood - like any Jedi would. I take the view that all religions are equally daft and so my reaction is obvious. But why don't Tesco treat women who wear headcloths appropriate for 7th century Arabia the same as people pretending to be from a galaxy far far away a long time ago?

The difference may be the gulf between a make believe lightsabre and a real life scimitar.

The Jedi factor - no one had factored that in.

I was amazed at the guardian site where so many people seemed to think that this was funny, or poke fun at the guy.

Surely they are missing the point? I am amazed that a customer can be chucked out of a supermarket for some dress code, and that TESCOS feels it can get away with a flippant reply.

Are baseball caps, Sikh turbans, burkas, African headgear also banned?
