Drop in and say hello.

I know I will be! Very bloody soon.

Lucky Seven Convenience Store Ipswich, cashing in on our misery.

Do we take bets on what race these scum are. I will put a fiver on Asians.

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? There is not a scrap of evidence yet to support these claims. The mob mentality has already decided he is guilty and if this keeps on I worry aboiut the safety of the owners of this store. these posts incite violence. Many have threatened to burn the store down with the owner inside. It is opurely heresay at this stage but the guy has already been hanged by the public. Ease up until some proof is provided and if he is guilty, then hang him!

Hence the recommendation to go and ask the owner yourself.

When it comes to mob mentality, hanged by the public, innocent until proven guilty and threats of violence, we have had our share.

The MSM do this every day? How many fine and upstanding people in this country do this after watching a Current affair?

If it is proven that the claim is false I will publish it. But having lived in that area I tend to believe the vid.

I appreciate your concern.

"A spokesman from Lucky Seven Express at Leichhardt said reports of the store selling bread and milk for $10 each were inaccurate."

Notice they say "inaccurate" not false.

Well interesting. I just spoke to the Indian store manager. He has claimed that they did not sell anything for the prices that has been suggested.

But he did say that the local Four Square down the road did.He also claimed that the Four Square store in question has been fined $25,000 for doing so.

Now who is right and who is wrong? Seeing Karen is concerned we will investigate the truth. Clear as mud on the streets of Ipswich.

Ok Karen, I made a few calls. I spoke to the White Australians from Four Square. To say they are upset is an understatement.

It would seem the Indian management at Lucky Seven has been trying to deflect the attention from themselves by saying it's the Four Square down the road "run by Asians" who got caught out.

Well not only did the Four Square store not get fined they certainly are not Asian. In fact they are seeking legal advice on this. They have had many reports of Lucky Seven staff spreading this rumor.

So I think we will leave the video up for now.

PS they have also been told that people are signing affidavits to back the claims of price gouging from Lucky Seven. Over $30 for disposable nappies is a little rich.

Three stores in Ipswich were accused of profiteering. No first hand evidence was presented. All were cleared.

I have visited this store myself over the weekend and purchased bread for $1.99.
