Edit : yes it has

Because food is quite cheap in the UK I suppose.

I tend to spend £15 quid a week and this tends to cover 7 varied cooked meals at home and food to prepare and take to work for lunch, without getting too scummy/risking scurvy. If you have lots of spices, condiments and staples in, you can rustle up a tasty meal for fuck all. I try to spread the cost of those out so I'm not having to replace an entire spice rack in one shopping trip.

Obviously I keep some money for the occasional meal out and the like.

By staples do you mean bread, eggs, rice, potatoes, pasta, beans? If you keep a bulk supply of those I can see how your weekly shop for fruit, veg and meat would be cheap.

Cut me and I bleed Waterfields meat and potato pasties.

Too dry MATE. Two veggie sausage rolls for a quid at the pound bakery. Or two of any cakes. Try buying one and you'll still be charged a quid. Mental.

If they're trying to take advantage of people leaving the pubs then a bouncer makes sense.

Yeah if 'take advantage' means sell them delicious yet reasonably prices warm savoury snacks.

Ok it's hardly a mixed salad but it's a notch healthier than cheesy chips or a dodgy kebab.

Pound Shag?

Britain's cheapest brothel

Quote from: Daily Sport (pretty reputable source right?)
The prostitutes, who called themselves Poundland Pussies, operated their cut-price whorehouse in Litherland, Merseyside.

They made the mistake of following the colour scheme of UKIP propaganda, which when combined with the big pound sign on the front of their leaflets, may have resulted in many people unwittingly sticking it straight in the nearest bin.

Pity as £1 takeaway = what's not to love?

In early October 2003, I bought an egg mayonnaise roll from Greggs and it was so awful I had to throw it away

Portion of chips might cost 30p to make. Batter some pence. Cheapo white fish 50p. Even if they make a loss on meals like that they'll make it up on charging a pound for the rough stuff.

Not that I'm a fat cunt or owt, but:

1) What is the hygiene rating of this joint?
2) Do they meet all employment laws?
3) Is there adequate parking and access to DixoNSS!"?
4) Is there affordable housing nearby?
5) What are the Ofsted ratings for the local school?
6) Are the local houses subject to planning regulations eg Green Belt, listed buildings?
7) Does the place provide a reputable brown sauce?
8) Are the local transport links acceptable?
9) Is the local sex industry tolerated and child -free?
10) Does James fucking Corden live anywhere near?

When it comes to cut price baps, Hull's Skeltons is hard to beat. Their raisin d'être was to be the cheapest form of pastry, and they fulfilled that role with aplomb amongst Holderness road residents during the 1980s and early 90s.
