An old picture chosen as the sun was shining then so long ago.
Today I trundled into Caesaromagus (Caesar's market place) and wandered through the shops surprised that the town was quite quiet. I was also surprised when checking the prices in the popular shop called 'Primark.' There jackets were on sale for under £30 and on the sale rack I noticed a reasonable one on offer at £10! Jings! Just a pity that as usual these things were the wrong size as they always are.
The thought crossed my mind that either
a) the girls back in Bangladesh making these clothes are paid less than we think or
b) the bigger shops are ripping us off big time! Jackets elsewhere ranger from £69 to £365!!!
Of course it might be
c) the workers are vastly underpaid and the shops rip us off.
I reckon the last one comes closest.
Nothing else worth saying so...
