Morrisons, well this one is a bit strange, I went out shopping for food for today, like most men I am sent with a list, lemon, onions, mushrooms, cream, bread and meat, beef fillet tails, supper tonight being stroganoff.
This sounds expensive but fillet tails are about £8 per lb and you don’t need much, basically you cop up and fry the onion and meat, add the cream sour it with the lemon juice add sliced mushrooms and a bit of dark soya sauce for taste and colour, when your rice is ready the stroganoff is done and you only have to pour on some brandy, light it and eat it.
Fries, lights and eats. Fries lights, and eats. Another grammar puzzle? So shopping for this in King Street, two greengrocers to chose from for the onions and lemon, less than 50p Rooks the butcher for the meat, then I got to the bread, the bog standard Kingsmill white sliced, £1.35 per loaf in Morrisons however opposite in Iceland, the shop not the county, the same loaf £1 or two for £1.80.
It think what Morrisons have done is to put convenience store prices in the middle of what is the main food shopping area of the town, where prices are very competitive, will it work? This may be just some sort of misunderstanding, I am a bit of a Boris when it comes to food prices, anyway I got the cream and the bread in Iceland and will investigate further.
In a time when most cafés seem to be doing very well, two in Harbour Street seem to have been closed for months.
Perhaps we have reached saturation point.
I have just read the latest edition to Thanet Watch and wondered vaguely about the people who comment saying they don’t read it, I had a good chuckle and find the what’s on for the month very useful. I do stock this one, and the back issues in my bookshop, which may be useful to some people.
Full council meeting tomorrow, a big agenda which you can view at http://democracy.thanet.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=141&MId=3051&Ver=4
It seems the senior officers are against the public filming council meetings, and the council should carry on uploading then to their own site at considerable cost, instead of live streaming them to youtube for free.
