Des, that was for both. Benson & Hedges a mere £8.38 at Tesco. Far too cheap. They should whack another couple of quid on and use the proceeds to subsidize pub-sold beer in the interests of the community (£3 for best bitter at my local).

Don't know about fags but last our local does Fosters or John Smiths bitter at £2.50 /pint, Carling or Tettly bitter at £2.90 / pint. There are cheaper pubs (not dumps either) by us doing Carlsberg at £2.20 / pint.

Compared with £2.90ish a litre in Tesco
