Someone said :
Make of it what you will but its asking for trouble putting limited amounts of bargains on sale...
Well yeah... But so what?
All day, my Twitter feed was full of people giving out about it, calling anyone who went along idiots and worse. But if they want to go and try to grab a bargain - knowing the risks - let them.
Everyone looks down on it but nobody involved really loses. The shops get loads of people in for the day. Customers get some amazing bargains. Because it's been around for a while now, they know how manic it can get. Win-win.
The only thing I would say is that I have seen footage of kids being brought along and I think they should be banned from it; purely because it can get so crazy. But if adults want to risk a mini riot to buy a TV for a tenner, who are we to tell they can't do it?
