Why is Sainsbury's selling Spar products?

If you have been into a Sainsbury's in Northern Ireland in recent days you may have seen something unusual.

Spar branded products on the shelves.

Sainsbury's has not taken over the convenience retailer or vice versa.

Instead what you are seeing is a contingency plan for the new Irish Sea border.

On 31 December, England, Scotland and Wales left the EU's single market for goods but NI did not.

This created a new trade and regulatory border between NI and the rest of the UK.

It means that food products entering NI from GB must undergo a range of time consuming new processes such as the creation of export health certificates and checks at new border posts.

In response, supermarkets have been looking at ways to source more products in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

For Sainsbury's that has meant signing a contract with Henderson Group, one of Northern Ireland's biggest food wholesalers which sells to retailers and caterers.

But the retailers they supply are almost exclusively a network of 450 Spar and Vivo stores across NI.

That is why some of the products they are providing to Sainsbury's have Spar branding.

 :lol

The fact that Twitter removed the Chinese Embassy tweet is far more concerning than any action they took against Trump.

Are they going to do this for all foreign government accounts now that might not agree with the accepted version of the truth? Who is deciding that truth? The US media is incapable of agreeing what the truth is domestically, let alone internationally, and if it is the US government who is deciding what's "the truth" then we all know how that turns out.

What about all the RT tweets that spout Russian state propaganda? What about all the Chinese state controlled media/propaganda accounts?

What's the reasoning behind removing the embassy tweet? Is it just because enough people complained about it? That's a slippery slope and not a policy that Twitter is capable of applying universally.

I think it has to do with the "making them no longer baby-making machines" bit.
Which seems to go against Twitter's policy. They censored the Ayatollah for the first time as well this week.
The Ayatollah posted an anti-vaxx tweet saying the EU and US vaccines were created to infect the world.

Lots of firsts.

GTFO racist thugs :pacspit

Quote
As many as 26,000 parents were wrongly accused by the Dutch tax authorities of fraudulently claiming child allowance over several years from 2012, with as many as 10,000 families forced to repay tens of thousands of euros, in some cases leading to unemployment, bankruptcies and divorces.

The tax authority admitted last year that at least 11,000 were singled out for special scrutiny because of their ethnic origin or dual nationality, fuelling longstanding allegations of systemic racism in the Netherlands.

Orlando Kadir, an attorney representing about 600 families, said people had been targeted “as a result of ethnic profiling by bureaucrats who picked out their foreign-looking names”. The government has apologised for the tax office’s methods and set aside more than €500m (£450m) in compensation, about €30,000 for each family.

A pigeon that travelled across the Pacific Ocean is to be put down after running afoul of Australia's strict quarantine rules.

The bird reportedly went missing during a race in the US state of Oregon in late October, before turning up in Melbourne almost two months later.

But officials say the pigeon, which has been named Joe, poses a "direct biosecurity risk"
