XC40. But honestly. The old folk I speak to are sad they can’t hug their people, not weeping that they have to queue at the supermarket. It’s an unfortunate inconvenience, not a humiliation or a sorry spectacle. The hyperbole around this is fabulous. I’m normally the handwringing over-dramatic one. Especially as at most supermarkets the vulnerable don’t have to queue.I say old bean, can you not just nip down Sainsbo's in your XC90 with the heated seats, singing as you go, or better still, have M&S deliver, that way you won't have to engage with others?
Remember the 80s marketing ditty:
"Will it be advocados, or artichoke?
Will it be asparagus or grated truffle?
Will it be Quinoa or toasted Cous Cous?
We'll have to wait and see...
Hope it's Plantain and Cassava Chips, I ho-ope it's Plantain and Cassava Chips..."
On a serious note, after 30 years working on and off in the Mother Continent, I've never ever seen such grossly disporoportionate devastation to the Mwanachi wrought by something so harmless. Thank feck there's no plans whatsoever to give the vaccine to poor Africans, literally the last thing they need...
