Previous Open Forum posts

Before the Opinion forum was created we had an Open Forum with one message that users could comment on.

This had two problems:

  • It became a magnet for spammers - so we had to introduce compulsory user registration
  • The comment thread became too lengthy - so we introduced the current Opinion section

You can view the old Open Forum here.

As one of the largest UK operations that was not in the hands of the city, the Coop was a failr easy target after the dodgy move of Britannia and its debts, now the rest of the Coop seems to be targeted for sale and acquisition by the City and hedge funds.  All of this means that is no longer a Coop, so shouldn't it be changing its name, or is there some way it can be brounght under the control of the mainland European Coops and back into public ownership?
