In my local market in London it is possible to buy three pounds of Bananas for 50p (about 75c). I find it impossible to believe that it is economically viable to grow, harvest, transport, ship, store, wholesale and then retail bananas for 16p a pound.
These are first rate bananas not rejects.
Someone told me the reason they are so cheap is that Colonel Gadhaffy is buying up bananas at above market price as a form of aid, and dumping them in Europe.
Can this possibly be true? Do I owe my cheap bannas to Muammar Gadhaffy?
If so; could he be persuaded to dump beer in Britain?
(you dont want to know what happens if you put “colonel gadhaffy bananas” into google)
