Is supermarket petrol bad for my car?

It seems to be common knowledge that supermarket petrol from Tesco, Asda or what have you stations is inferior to the stuff from a "proper" petrol station. That it damages the engine in the long run for any of a variety of vague and poorly explained reasons.
Is there any substance to this idea, or is it just superstition? Googling gave me lots of conjecture but nothing authoritative.
UK-centric in case it matters. Thanks.
