Return to Gin Lane

I like a G & T. Our local Asda has a litre for £16. I think all the local supermarkets must rotate offers on booze because if it is more at Asda it is less at Sainsburys and vice versa. In a litre of gin there are 40 units. Minimum pricing at 40p a unit makes £16.00. So Gin, Vodka, Brandy, Whiskey etc will be the cheapest booze per unit when Cameron has his way. Hmmm. How does that reduce strong alcohol consumption?

It doesn't Lils.

Same here with 'Grants' Scotch (Mrs S won't take gin - family thing), but I would - by the gallon!

I think you'e right, they all eyeball their prices, then swap their costs around.

You'll never prove it - how could you!

We're currently on a 25% reduction on our local Budgens, because they've reopened.

Better than a kick up the arse I suppose...

I'm so sorry Lils; I said 'ARSE' to a Lovely Lady like you!

Shaddup Scrobs and stop digging you pillock...

Oh Scrobs, "ARSE" is absolutely fine here. I have said much worse.

'Grants' Scotch? Guaranteed to make me insomniac and maudlin but then Gin does that to some people. And I can't imagine you maudlin Scrobs. Not without trying really hard.

Hi Lils, glad to see you back-a-blogging...I'm in despair with this coalition government....I'm even beginning to believe what the Daily Mail says now. We are getting hammered fot tax, no income from investments etc. The price of drink for moderate drinkers is almost unaffordable....ther rant over...Happy Easter...we've both got Flu...harumph...Di..xxx

So sorry to hear about your 'flu Di. Pretty lousy here myself, with a great array of linctus and pain killers. Sniff/cough/cough.

Get well soon!
