Waitrose advert on the telly, with a voiceover by Roger McGough – only, Waitrose is so posh it doesn’t actually have a branch in poor old Liverpool!

If you were poor, left, to Tesco’s. The blessed and the damned. I once saw a little girl by the cash machine in the station foyer: “Daddy! Daddy! I can’t reach the numbers!”.
