This blog is rather personal to me and my criticism may not br shared be shared by everyone or anyone come to that. Well years ago milk was delivered to the door in a bottle with a gold or silver top sealing it and a couple of inches of lovely cream visually at the top. We used to have to make sure we got ours inside quickly or we had to share the cream with the magpies that lurked around. Milk then was a lovely drink I could demolish a bottle full of milk on a hot summers day in a blink. I worked at the rear of a milk distribution centre so it was available at anytime and it was a pleasure to drink. So we come to 2008, in fact the last few years, I dont drink milk anymore I occasionally may put it over cerial and thats all. What has happened to it? white water, tasteless, no cream, expensive and who knows how they whoever THEY are get it to this state. To sum it up in one word its RUBBISH. A very interesting advertisment on TV here in West Australia shows a guy promoting Woolworths making sure its meat is up to standard with this bloke visiting a beef cattle property and making sure the quality of the beef is good. Its a pity Woolworths dont get this bloke to visit a dairy farm and seek out some quality there. He will find it there as it leaves the cow and that where it ends, its a terrible shame that such a lovely animal that produces such a wonderful product has to be associated with the rubbish that ends up in the supermarkets for human consumption at such an exorbitant price. Thats my view of the milk situation here and I shall continue to be a milk abstainer until I can afford my own cow…………thanks
One doesnt have to go into the pros and cons of the inquiry and try and make any sense of the bullshit being kicked around, if Coles and Woolies and anyone else come to that are genuine about discounts on petrol, which of course is just crap, why is it they dont offer the discount at the checkout of four cents in the dollar to the non car owner for the goods they have just purchased. Wouldnt that make a balanced situation, its called a choice They, plus the inflated prices of the goods on the shelves are the real discounters that are propping up the greedy scheme. If either of you are genuine about discounts then offer it as a choice at the checkout and not at another of your retail outlets thats selling a product at already inflated prices loaded by the oil companies. GET REAL AND LIVE UP TO THE CRAP ADVERTISING YOU THROW OUT ABOUT HELPING PEOPLE………………………sure,some help robbing their wallets and purses.
