Opium - I'm afraid I am like large swathes of the population and think there are very few politicians out there of any hue are in it for altruistic reasons. The West Lothian questions, therefore, for me might as well be why the Linlithgow fat boy doesn't go on a diet and why Tam Dalyell doesn't throw open the doors of the House of Binns for free to those who cannot afford National Trust for Scotland entrance fees.
And as I am fully immersed in very altruistic duties at present, I'll leave you to sing constantly the praises of your beloved Tesco on this bb whilst calling into question the merits of the other supermarkets. Gute Nacht
LOL Tennants, I think my brothers stopped buying that when they started earning or the Miss Scotland and a bevvy of other beauties got dropped from the cans - not pc any more. Do I sense a kind of anti-Scottishness enveloping the bbs in independence referendum year or do people not like Hyman and I since we sold tesco.
Better get that potash out of the Yorkshire ground because if oil, whisky and Barrs Irn Bru go, the economy will start to look a tad more fragile. I remember you wishing me well when I sold sxx a couple of years ago at a wee bit higher than the current price. Maybe we need troopermerlin on here to give us his expert opinion on the red stuff but I'd avoid talking about beer because that's another thing the Germans do better than us - aye that and BMWs. atb
As a long term Tesco holder and even longer lover of wine - the one big tip I would offer is . Feel the punt (The depression in the bottom when bottle is upsidedown) . If you can get your finger (or thumb) well into it then price for price choose the one with the deeper punt. Many supermarket wines have a flat bottom. Years ago the punted bottle was there to hold the natural "cast" of a good red wine. Now I believe it better represents the producer's idea of the quality of his wine. If he thinks his wine is worth a more expensive bottle, believe him.It always works for me. ... NB
I asked wine buffs whats the markup on £10 Champagne? FYI the answer is nothing its a loss leader. Lego is right, price has nothing to do with value. Try this one: does French wine always come from France?
