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..
