It's not just the groceries.
I'm lucky enough to visit Belfast every month on business & whilst there I make the most of it. We read continually about the bargains to be got on grocery shopping ( about 45% difference in my experience ) but I now will spend my punting € nowhere else.
The average for 1 hr. is £150 ( €170ish ). The best on offer here is €200 / hr. while most ladies still hold out for the, now unacceptable, €250 / hr.
What really pisses me off though are the touring ladies advertising both £ rates in the north, € rates in the south & looking for £150 there & €250 here.
Boycott them I say, blacklist them & send them back to where they came from.
I will punt only in Belfast now.
When I'm the Minister for Revenge Bertie's ring will be twitching !
