For years it was £4.99 - £2.50 a bottle. Now it's £6.99, still only £3.50 per 75cl. I may drink a small tumbler, or several. When guests sup, I pour it into a big glass water jug for the table. It's healthy, and it's cheap.
What I don't want when next I crack the screw-top is to have in the vision of the corner of my eye some squint-faced old maid with parts dry as sandpaper and dugs like saggy purses from some State health warning body wagging an admonitory finger at me. Can't we pack all these raddled hags off to climb Everest or something? I didn't vote for this.
