Move over the likes of Mondeo Man. It is now Asda's shoppers (female shoppers with kids, you understand) that, apparently, are key to getting the keys to 10 Downing Street.
The asdamums.asda.com site carries an introduction from Andy Bond, who stepped down from his role as Asda chief executive yesterday.
