Our local newsagent has decided to sell non-perishable groceries as well as newspapers, magazines, confectionery and soft drinks .
To make room, he moved the newspapers outside where any passer-by could take one and walk off. When I asked him he said ‘No. In this district it’s fine’, and I wondered about the petrol stations and other places where newspapers, barbeque stuff and flowers are on display out of site of the cashiers.
Are we getting more trustworthy?
