Re: Prescription charge

What a rip off. It was only for a tube of cream that probably cost sod all to manufacture.

You're not just paying for the manufacturing cost — you're also paying for the costs that went into developing the product (since those will be [more]

Re: Musings on Aldi

dialling 1471 should tell you the number calling.
