48p for a single red onion? Forty-eight pence. Not for a large onion either; a very medium onion, the sort that you chop up and think "that's nowhere near enough onion I'd best use another one". Which will mean 96p just on onions in whatever it is you are making. At this rate it will start being cheaper to live on chips.

Reader, I did not buy the onion.

They were charging 70p for a single tomato too - and they didn't have any left.

Have just been watching Louis Theroux following some cops around in Philly. The thing is, while he does find a lot of trouble and his nerdy but persistent BBC guy schtick does get people expressing themselves, if you follow cops around in most cities you will end up with a lot of depressing stories. Next week apparently he is in Jo'burg.

It's time for all of us to locate our local greengrocers.

Well, I normally go to the market, only it's closed on Sundays. I wasn't expecting quite that level of pisstaking though.

He doesn't have to follow any cops for depressing stories.

That wasn't a supermarket surely? Or is that London supermarket prices!
