Ha I would have cheap milk and **** the Tory loving farmers, that's capitalism if they don't like it let them **** off and live in north Korea
Welcome to real world of capitalism...and Thatchers "Market Forces"...the market dictates the price of supply and demand... but the spanner in the works for farmers was Supermarkets use Milk/Bread as loss leaders... but it's farmers who are now paying that loss....and of course we all want cheaper food prices, now do we Lets be honest....no one forced them to sign up with the supermarkets....they when it with eyes wide shut ;)
Regarding being deal being Hot or Cold - I have votes for neither as I can see the value for those on the bread line (hot)- but I see the damage this pricing would do to farmers and the national economy (cold).
Depends on your perspective regarding the name. In Urdu 'Pak' means pure/holy/untainted - and I'm pretty sure the family that own the brand have a Pakistani heritage. Regarding the price, I agree it is bad for farmers - that's why I personally am willing to pay more. But for those on a tight budget it may be that they ate on a very tight budget. Ultimately, in my opinion, without supporting local/national industries constant low prices will it lead to lower wages for all as employers will say 'profits are down due to low prices for our good to remain competitive, therefore wage rises will have to wait, but inflation is low so you don't need such a pay rise'- and the downward spiral continues. Some things if you can afford to pay slightly more you should just pay more - support the local economy. Just a personal opinion.
You're probably buying skimned milk! :D
