As tributes to the fallen go, it’s hardly Laurence Binyon. A well-meaning Tesco pizza preparer rolled out these rather crass (if, it must be said, delicious-looking) tributes to the war dead last weekend.
“Colleagues in stores have been marking Remembrance Sunday in a number of ways,” said a Tesco spokeswoman. “We hope customers see that their intentions in this case were entirely borne out of respect.”
We probably won’t be seeing the poppyroni pizza on sale in all Tesco stores soon, then.
