Have your say

Have readers noticed the blatant rip-off by companies staging Christmas events, fairs etc?

Why do so many so-called Christmas fairs ask for £3-£5 entry while flogging overpriced gifts?

Not forgetting so-called farmers’ markets. Bargains? Please tell!

Overpriced bread and foodstuffs are the norm and the authenticity of its rural origins are a grey area.

An upmarket supermarket excelled recently by offering a 275 gram Kilner jar of piccalilli for £5. Further along the shelf was its own identical product – for 89p.

The moral is – do the maths!
