The farmers are agitating, so it’s the perfect time for the farming minister to have blundered spectacularly by admitting that he doesn’t know the price of a pint of milk. Jim Paice was asked by Radio 4 if he knew how much milk cost, to which he replied: “No, because my wife buys most of it“. As if that wasn’t enough, Paice then put his foot in it again by mistakenly joking that the gaffe had got him on Page 3 of the Sun:
Memo to Farms Minister Jim Paice. Actually u r on page ten of the Sun. Page 3 has Emily from Warrington !!.
