    He should shut up, he should go away, he should enhance his lethality and increase his mass

    Whenever I am back in New Zealand I get a reality check on prices. Groceries, clothes and pharmacy products are expensive. Occasionally you might get a few bargains but you definitely get more for your money in the UK.

    Too right. It was a bit of an eye-opener to see prices really reflect the seasons, so that the cost of broccoli, for example, quintuples in the winter. In a way it's good because it makes you more conscious of the 'true' cost of food, but I also like broccoli year-round.

    When I'm back in the UK everything seems so cheap all the time.

    I guess you can't tell what you're eating when it's a meal cooked by Lzdmother

    I was astonished at how much things cost in south africa. Anything involving labour is cheap, but actual things are ridiculously expensive.

    We have got a real punch in the dick on the horizon.

    We'll be like America where processed shite is dirt cheap, but everything else requires a second job.

    Groceries are a bit more expensive here than London but eating out is cheaper by a bigger margin.

    We don't have chlorinated chicken but our beef works out a lot so has hormone therapy

    SA's not that bad, only if you do all your shopping in laanie Woolworths whole food-esque places. Pick'n'pay, shoprite et al have "normal" prices. Just talking about food and clothing. Electronics is a different story, eish...

    That's what I was talking about, really. I broke some sunglasses while I was over there and even a shit pair cost a fortune to replace them.

    That's kind of a London thing, though. My brother's foreign wife had never left London in ten years, so when he took her rate up north to meet the family, she was shocked that you could get food and drinks in a decent pub for six people for the price they usually paid for two.

    Getting change out of a fiver for a pint was also quite the novelty.

    Ever been out eating and drinking in Stockholm folks? Hugely expensive. Rivals Zurich for the most expensive place I visit regularly. I have paid 12 quid for a pint before.

    Reykjavik is worse.

    I fucking love Stockholm though. Need to visit again soon.

    It's still massively cheaper to eat out in Vancouver than other UK places. Restaurants are cheaper here. Probably to make up for the real estate prices

    What's the average poutine price?

    Not to slag off my birth country again but... Eating out in NZ is also expensive.

    Breakfast is the worst, you wont find a cafe doing a 5 quid breakfast but you can get charged twice that for an average eggs benedict or fry up.

    At the higher end establishments its probably on a par but for pub food or similair you're probably paying double London prices.

    I think for the first time last night I was genuinely worried about the likely hood of a no deal.

    If we do leave without one, we're fucked. 2/3rds of our entire social/econimic/political etc life are intertwined with the EU and trade deals. With a no deal that all disappears and it looks like there is nothing there at all to replace any thing that we lose.

    I will give you exclusive rights to go cat harvesting in my garden.
    My garden used to be full of birds, now thanks to neighbour's cats and the cat lady in the next street with her seven, the birds don't bother any more.:-(:-(

    Here's some news to cheer everyone up:

    Theresa May would gain seats and win a tiny majority if there were a general election now, according to a YouGov poll and analysis for the Times. The findings probably deserve more attention than conventional surveys because this is not a standard poll. Instead, YouGov polled more than 40,000 adults and then used a system called multilevel regression and post-stratification (MRP) to predict results for all seats in Britain, based on constituency demographics. A YouGov MRP analysis before the 2017 correctly predicted a hung parliament when almost all conventional polling suggested the Tories were going to win.
