Interviewers love nothing more than illustrating how out of touch politicians are with reality and their constituents by asking questions like “How much is a pint of milk”? only for them to answer £2 to our amusement.
Yesterday, in an unforced error, Dave told the Manchester Evening News “I think if what you’re trying to do is stop supermarkets from selling 20 tins of Stella for a fiver, that’s what we’ve got to go after” in his relentless quest to punish the poor drinking classes. As it happens Guido has been known to drink the odd Stella and would really appreciate knowing where Dave gets his for 25p a can, it is more like 50p or more from Sainsbury’s on special offer.
As it happens Channel 4’s FactCheck says you can get own-brand equivalents for as little as 22p. Anyone know if they are drinkable? Just askin..
