Don't just stand there like a...

On the front page of the Daily Telegraph is a short article regretfully informing us that the price of a gin and tonic is set to soar, due to an increase in the price of lemons.

Following poor citrus fruit harvests, the price of a lemon has risen by up to 52% in some supermarkets.


How ridiculous.




Everyone knows you drink gin and tonic with a slice of lime...

Britain's FAVOURITE drink is about to disappear - thanks to OUT OF CONTROL inflation that will push the price of LEMONS in our G&Ts to A HUNDRED POUNDS EACH! Gordon Brown and the EU are to blame, doing NOTHING to etc. etc. cont'd p.94 of the Daily Mail. Don'tcha miss Gazeta Wyborcza (Cor Wot a Scortcha)?!?

It's so true. Gordon Brown and the EU and All Those Bloody Foreigners. The country is going to the dogs. Support The Express Crusade to Save the Gin and Tonic!

Gazeta Wyborcza? The true Torygraph fan in Poland reads Rzeczpospolita!

And as for Britain's favourite drink... Try going into Wetherspoons and ordering a 'Frisky Bison'. Tastes strangely familiar...
