Custard Creams Are Cheaper Than Cous Cous, But You Can’t Expect A Fucking Baroness To Know That

Posted: December 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

When you factor in electricity or gas to heat and cook a meal, it starts to become uncontrollably expensive per portion – something MP’s choose to ignore while the energy companies make a big fat profit.

I’m disgusted to live under this government, spouting blatant lies and bullshit to the electorate regarding how irresponsibly they’re spending taxpayer’s money (I mean, £50 MILLION to the English football team…wait, what?!?) – meanwhile a majority of out of touch, unelected piggies voting against reducing the champers allowance for the House of Lords because they’re feart they’ll have to quaff sub-standard bubbly…to use just one example.

What planet are we actually living on, and is it going to have to be too late before people choose to see what’s going on?!?

custard_creams The lowest priced flavoured Cous Cous, at £4.55/kg, costs five times more than a kilo of custard creams.

Anyone who claims that healthy food is a cheaper option has clearly never enjoyed the dubious nutitional delights of a pack of Everyday Value Custard Creams (35p, 1,972 calories).

They’ve also probably never been to a supermarket.  Or at least never been to a supermarket with less than a tenner to last until the end of the week and two kids to feed.  This hasn’t stopped a string of pompous twats from appearing in the media this week and telling us how much better they would be at being poor than the plebs using foodbanks.

The nearest supermartet, who shall remain nameless because they are bastards, sells a kilo of value oats for 75p.  This means you can, just about, make a large bowl of porridge for 4p, as Baroness Jenkins claimed

    I do not know the number of times I argued that the cost of fuel was the main reason for the fact that people can no longer use the cheaper cuts of meat, pulses etc, not that they cannot cook. Easier to go out and buy a pound burger at McDonalds if indeed nowadays you actually have a pound.
    Having been broke in the past, but has anyone even or especially my age, mid sixties ever experience the real poverty that people are feeling today. Well we had our bad times but always managed one way or another to eat.
    I have always said that unless you have walked a mile in someone’s shoes be slow to condemn.
    It comes badly from someone paid £300 a day to have a nice snooze in the HOL.
