Is Tesco still stocking JS:TO?

It seems the Christian Institute may have been mistaken about Tesco banishing JS:TO from its shelves. A subscriber to the NSS mailing list received this response from Wayne Hansen at Tesco customer services:

Thank you for your email.

I can advise we are still selling jerry springer the opera. It has been
certified for sale in the UK by the British Board of Film Classification.

As such we feel it is the individuals choice as to which films they choose
to watch. People who may be offended by certain titles have the choice not
to view them.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Add to this the fact that Asda and Woolworths are all still selling the DVD from their websites, and it looks like the CI are a little bit quick to award their little green tick to retailers.

    I’m kind of surprised Asda weren’t the first to go for an all out ban, considering the Walmart connection.

    Just like Judge Jones said in the Dover trial – the christians are liars.

    It’s interesting to note that sainsburys claim that they would have stopped selling JS:TO at the end of the second week on the shelves because of poor sales, and that they withdrew it a couple of days earlier than they would have done anyway.
