I suppose this thread was bound to deteriorate into the price of Efes Tetleys.

I was in a newsagent's the other day and was gobsmacked to see 20 silk sluts (silk cuts purple) were a whopping £8,55 per pack :o

At over £8.00 a packet Kkob I don't think I would ask for them at all, rather come back home to Turkey and save money.  :)

Of course the prices for cigs being quoted is for stuff sold in shops. None of the smokers I know buy their cigs/rolling tobacco in shops. The Government health warnings on their packets are in Spanish, Dutch, Walloon (and, I guess, various Eastern European languages I cannot identify); English is quite a rarity. Makes me smile when smokers tell me their taxes are keeping the NHS running. They may be sponsoring somebody's health service but it sure isn't the British one. Wednesday is the day for under-the-table sales at my local.

Colwyn, what on earth are you talking about? chill out, sit yourself down and have a pint of tetleys (3% vol) and a packet of fags, only £11.00. Happy Easter. ;D ;D

Look on xe webpages and that's near enough the rate you will get in the banks.

Why is this always about fags and booze?
Why does no one ever compare the price of fruit and veg?

I still shake my head in amazement and smile when I get a huge bag of fruit for around 50p.
Little things that make me happy.
