Sunday Worship
at Sainsbury's.

My elderly mother, who once wouldn’t dare miss mass on Sunday, now really likes to visit Sainsbury’s on a Sunday.

This, she says, is a capitalist society. One which worships money and as it has, throughout history, been important for the citizens of a country to worship the gods of those who are at the top, she feels that by going to Sainsbury’s on Sundays she dutifully worships the gods of those who make our nation’s laws.

In fact, she has suggested that Sainsbury’s should have a bell which could be rung on Sundays the moment the tills are open for business. This way everybody would know that Sunday shopping isn't just shopping, it’s a whole religious experience.
