Subject: RE: BS: Norway Leads The Way
Yeah but in Norway, you have to buy wines and spirits from government owned outlets, a bit like back in the '80s when I used to go on business "behind the iron curtain." Norway had never been there but they picked that idea up..
Naw, I've got family there. When we visited last, I offered to cook one day, popped down the supermarket and as I was cooking a fish pie for eight people, it occurred to me that I had spent £130.00 on four cod fillets, ditto smoked haddock, half as much salmon and a handful of prawns. It further occurred to me, from talking to the chef at a restaurant in Capetown the previous year that Norway nets so much fish they export tons of the stuff to South Africa. Taking the piss...
Glad to see you note fannies in the UK sense. Can't have our resident homophobe hating you too.
