plus I've always maintained that supermarkets don't sell food cheap - they sell cheap food as in cheap and nasty.

I noticed on the news last night , that due to the drought conditions in UK, food prices ( fruit/veg) are likely to rise, due to water restrictions being imposed!.......

but they nevercome back down , do they,or at least not ot the original levels.

Those of us wealthy enough to have access to the internet will be fine. It's those poor people already living in marginal enviroments who will suffer themost. I feel partly responsible as I do waste and I do use a car, central heating etc. If anyone has ideas of how to help it would good.
