Ed Balls, celebrating job losses.


Asda is centralising it's homeshopping service into regional centres, rather than in supermarkets. Ed writes here about a new Asda centre in his constituency: http://www.edballs.co.uk/index.jsp?i=4265&s=1111

The justification for the centre is that it is twice as effecient as doing it in stores. Presumambly the 200 jobs in Morely are replacing 400 jobs across the region, either at Asda stores or Adsa's competitors. I bet those losing their jobs aren't celebrating with Ed.
