Quality newspapers are not just for the intelligentsia

The wonderful Northern family owned Booths supermarkets (since 1847) have a number of great loyalty bonuses including free tea  and coffee (you don’t even need to buy anything!) and a free newspaper on Saturdays and Sundays if you spend more than £10. So picking up a Sunday Times for example is a saving of £2.50 (the current cover price).

I was at the hand basket till point on Sunday and a young girl in front of me had a few items together with the Weekend Financial Times which looks like it weighs in at the sumo end of the scale. The chap serving glanced at her and asked “is that for you?”, pointing at the FT, to which she replied, “actually it’s for my rabbit”.
