“There’s one good thing about Tesco – it keeps the riff-raff out of Waitrose”*

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!

*I’ve often heard this line attributed to Stephen Fry, but it was originally Alan Coren, who presumably did his shopping in Finchley Road – if you were rich, you turned right out of the tube, to Waitrose. 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!”.
