Which? poll says many 'borrowing money for food'

#3
How do they differentiate between someone living hand to mouth, borrowing to survive, and someone who likes to use their credit card to do the weekly big shop?

I borrowed £2 for a bag of chips off a lad in work the other day (I'd left my wallet at home and it turned into a '**** it, let's go the chippy' day).

Am I living proof of the collapse of the UK economy?

I wonder how many of those who 'borrowed money' for food were in similar circumstances (or using a credit card for their shopping)?

One of the unions i'm a member of sends me polls to my phone. Just for fun I just make up all the replies, reckon other people may do the same.

I bet a high percentage of these people have new Iphones, full sky packages, smoke etc.
perhaps they sholud buy veg and stuff and cook instead of living on Mchorrors and ready meals.

Well, food is getting noticeably more expensive and wages do not increase at the same rate so it's not exactly a surprise. It can't all be laid at the door of poor budgeting.

Two weeks ago Tesco had sprouts for sale at £3.90 a kg, cauliflowers were £1.98 and spring greens £1.20 so I didn't buy them I bought courgettes which are pretty bland so I deep fried them in a batter with garam masala.
I bought vegetables last week from Morrissons they were considerably cheaper.

Well, after I've paid for my SKY, fags, beer and scratchcards there's quite often not much left over for luxuries like food & car insurance - bastard Tories!
