    Only way to feed yourself these days is to buy process crap from iceland. If you want a balanced healthy diet be prepared to find employment paying 50k per year after tax

    no, it's not
    I've got filet steak, ostrich and scallops to enjoy
    the matter is DON'T get employed
    be your own boss, start your own business
    I did and look at my diet, the Mercedes I am buying or the Rolex I have already bought myself or the Lalique crystal statue for my desk
    that's what i have done with my Brexit profit along with some reinvestment in my company

    Food prices are not going to increase, because of a brexit.
    Uh yeah they are. There's going to be at least 3% slapped on immediately. After that, who knows

    Only 3 percent?
    That is hardly going to cause concern among the masses

    I am not against people having a choice in life.. but for one person who can afford to shop in the most expensive places in comparison to another who needs to visit foodbanks.. how is this a fair society we live in!

    Eh it's not too bad, I suppose meat (depending on the meat) is quite expensive, but then we've become accustomed to eating meat pretty much daily which we didn't used to. The price of most fruit/veg has come down a tad over the last couple of years, peppers, lettuce etc.

    It depends on where you're shopping and whether you care enough to look around for offers. Every pound counts for me. Usually supremarkets try and cheat you by saying the 'larger' size of a regular product is on offer but if you but two of the regular size product you can some times end up with more product for a cheaper price. Also big supermarkets like asda usually have a clearance section in the fruits and vegetables section and a random one with different items I always have a look in these sections. For fruits and veg in general I usually shop at lidl. Lidl is so underrated, my sister often turns her nose up at it b cause she can't buy branded items like you can in the supermarket. I also love how lidl has that random isle of **** in the middle of the store

    Not really. It depends which grocery store you shop at.

    Surely you can grow food really cheaply?
    Ah but you see, that requires a minimal amount of skill, a little bit of effort and some patience. Qualities which are sorely lacking in the average modern day person.
