Pound Shop Depth in the EU

Bag of sugar @ Pound Shop = £1
Jar of mayonnaise @ Pound Shop = £1

Bag of sugar @ Lidl = £0.42
Jar of mayonnaise @ Lidl = £0.75

Enough said!

The Sunday Times is reporting that it will take a long time to find the Egypt Air black box, as it's over 2 miles down. A cursory glance at any chart of the Eastern Med will show the depth there is around 1,000m, and 1,500m at the most. So much for accurate reporting.

Here's an idea - replace those interminable and dreary X-Factor type shows with debates on the EU. Now that would attract an audience, as everyone has a view, and quite rightly so.


  1. It's the same with charity shops where we live, the stuff is often dearer than buying new.

  2. South of Crete (where they are reportedly searching) is the Hellenic Trench which has depths >5000 metres.

    1. But not where the circle on the map was - I checked.

  3. Only looked in our Fr Lidl today
