Letter: Laws scrambled for supermarkets

HOW many times do we hear about someone being caught stealing from a grocery store? Often they are arrested and have to front the court. It's all part of the system under which we live.

Recently there has been news reports of supermarkets deceiving the public by selling "free-range eggs" at more than the standard egg price; but, the eggs aren't free range.

This deception has been perpetuated on the public, by the supermarkets, for some time.

Is it moral to have one law for the shoplifters and one for the economically powerful supermarkets?

Isn't it time for the supermarkets to be held responsible for their deceptive practices?

A good place to start would be to define what constitutes free-range eggs. But which politician is game enough to take on this segment of the big end of town?
