SO PHIL Clarke, Tesco-lifer turned

July 22, 2014


SO PHIL Clarke, Tesco-lifer turned chief exec, is out. Not only is he out, but his big "40 years with the supermarket" party, scheduled for tonight at the V&A, has been put on ice. However, while both the museum and the supermarket were tight-lipped about the details of the doomed soiree, there's no need to feel too bad for Clarke - this Cinderella will go to the ball, eventually.

A spokesperson for Tesco told The Capitalist that Clarke's 40th anniversary party will still happen. Anyone who read this page yesterday will also be aware that someone paid 12k for a one-on-one with the chief executive, at a fundraising ball on Friday. Tesco insists that Clarke will honour his offer - we suppose it just comes down to whether or not the unidentified bidder will still want it.
