Mad Cow Juice

In London on Saturday lunchtime I found a shop that sold the sorts of things that you need for a picnic, and then went to choose a drink.

Along with the vast array of sweet and fizzy stuff in the refrigerator, there was a choice of bottled waters (from around the world), and there was milk.

Milk cheaper than water?  Deranged!
Milk cheaper than water?  Deranged!
Imagine my surprise when I realised that a bottle of water cost over a pound, and a similar size bottle of milk cost just 60p.

Now you can see why UK farmers are complaining about lack of revenue.  Milk can't possibly be cheaper to produce than water - not in England at least!

I sympathise,  The world is just mad!
