Something else that's shameful....£1.59 for a Warburton's Wholemeal Loaf. Lincolnshire Co-Op should hang their heads.

Martin, I cannot help it but bread price is the one thing I always convert to LSD. Very, very rarely do I do it with anything else but I do often think 'OMG, £1 and eight shillings for a LOAF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!' :<>

A friend of mine always gets annoyed with me for calling a Fifty Penny Piece a Ten Bob Bit. I Tend to convert the price of stamps to old money, but there won't be much point soon when a first class stamp reaches £1.
