In case you did not see the news today, according to a shock report in the Daily Telegraph, the cost of Breakfast is going up. Business correspondent ‘Harry Wallop’ – no, really, that’ his name – tells us that “for a full English breakfast you now need a fuller wallet”. Tea is up nearly 20%, bacon by almost 10% – and eggs, bread, orange juice and coffee are all up by at least 4%. It doesn’t actually say, but presumably the numbers are compared to the same time last year.
In the light of such devastating economic implications, should we abandon Breakfast Wednesday until we’re all in management and can afford it once more? Shall we pawn our bicycles to buy the bread?
Nah .. we’ll press on and take it on the chin, like the true Brits that we are. Here’s to breakfast – whatever the cost!
