Yes. But on viewing the page source (of the blank page), I discovered it
was entirely made of scripts from assets.msn.com, a source I normally
have blocked; temporarily unblocking it lets me see the page - telling
me that they assessed supermarkets on a scale of 1-5, with Aldi coming
out cleanest, but the lowest - Iceland - being 4.89, so not a lot in it
(Aldi and M&S coming out at 4.99).

What a crappy - sorry - page design! _Very_ hard to read (even find!)
the guts of it, among all the adverts, clickbait links, twitches ...
(Not getting at you JMB or the OP.) No wonder I had that source blocked!

P. S. - Now looking at it in Firefox rather than Chrome. Lot more
readable - at least all the adverts and clicklinks are after the body,
and I could see the "Continue reading" button.

Wofe just received an email from Ocado. They just did a price-match
with Tesco[1] and were refunding £1.68 (approx) on her last order (it
was only for around £48).

[1] Should that be 'price match against Tesco'?

Yes, I've just had one of those, for £3.98. Mind you, once or twice, on
weeks when I've actually done my own full price match with/against
Tesco[3], building near identical orders in the two systems[2] and known
that, for those, Ocado was much more expensive (generally in the region
of 20-30% uplift), I've received a cheerful message telling me that I've
saved money by shopping with Ocado... I can only assume that their list
of products that they compare consists largely of items I don't buy.
>

Probably.

[2] before adding the goodies that Tesco doesn't sell and which were the
reason for me to place an Ocado order in the first place.
[3] not something I do that often. It generally only happens if I've
been planning to buy from Tesco before, for some reason (probably
imminent visitors), I've changed plan and decided to get an Ocado order
instead.
