Wallies of the Week – Linda and Tony Gilkes

Middlesborough couple go to the press after Morrisons refuse to sell them meat pies before 9am

 

There are conspiracy theorists and then there’s a pie loving duo named Linda and Tony Gilkes from Teeside.

 

Featured in a local newspaper named GazetteLive, these pensioners “were left piping hot with fury” after the Berwick Hills, Middlesborough branch of Morrisons refused to sell them eight large sausage rolls and two steak bakes at 8.45am last Wednesday.

 

In the most bizarre set of comments imaginable, 62-year old Mrs Gilkes remarked:

 

“I could see bags and bags of pies, all wrapped up on cages behind the counter. The trolley was ready to be pushed out. But when I asked for the pies, I was told: ‘We can’t sell the pies until 9am’. I could have had a fruit pie, but not a meat pie.”

 

“If they hadn’t been cooked, that would make sense. But the fact that they were baked, well – it’s ridiculous. If I could’ve reached over, I would have grabbed them myself.”

 

“I wasn’t waiting 20 minutes so I went to Cooplands [another local shop]. I was disappointed to say the least. They are dictating to me when I can buy pies and when I can shop.”

 

Her angry husband, a man curiously described as someone capable of “[eating] fish and chips three days a week and rarely [touching] pastry,” added:

 

“When you’re faced with that situation at the counter, you start thinking: ‘Is it Candid Camera? Is it April Fool’s Day?”

 

“There’s more to this. Morrisons have got their own agenda. They don’t want people to know about it, They have given too many ridiculous stories about why. They contradicted themselves over and over.”

 

“Who do they think us customers are? We are the people paying their wages.”

 

Theresa May might be busy with Syria but she ought to get her priorities in order and head to Middlesborough and get herself behind Morrisons’ pie counter: Mr and Mrs Gilkes need her.
