Most tweets in one of those threads up there though seems to be hijacked by furious people north of the border who don't like the use of the union flag.
Why do angry Scotch people always have to spoil everything? #MelGibson
Tesco are pretty good with their regional flags. Most Scottish stores have Saltires aplenty on home-grown goods. The Kirkwall and Lerwick stores even have Orkney and Shetland flags (in the house style) on their POS, which is impressive given most people don't even realise they exist.

If Tesco seriously think they're going to claw back any of Aldi and Lidl's market share with this extremely basic half-arsed effort, they've got another thing coming.
I suppose it comes down to the shopping experience. I was in a brand new Lidl today (in a unit previously inhabited by Bhs) and while the store itself wasn't too much of a scrum, the checkout area still felt like some sort of purgatory. I find the local Aldi (huge; in a former B&Q) is less painful, but I guess small checkout areas lower the overheads and doesn't put people off if it's the price of saving money on their big shop.
