Bob Geldof attacks charity shops

Band Aid organiser Bob Geldof has launched an attack on charity shops, claiming that they should all be closed down. Geldof was appearing on Radio 4’s Start the Week programme, and was asked what should be done to save small shops.

He commented, “I live in a small town in Kent and a major supermarket set up shop on the outskirts and it denuded the town. We saw the ubiquitous charity shops sprouting everywhere, which is the first sign of decline.” “If there was zero tolerance in policing then they would immediately raid charity shops and close them down.”
