Black Friday blues.

There is a longish piece in this morning’s Mail about the lack of enthusiasm (queuing; getting up really early) to join in the race for alleged bargains and ‘super discounts’ during the early stages of ‘Black Friday’. Most of us must remember that famous photo, reproduced below, of last year’s punters searching, (grappling, fighting, desperately struggling) for a chance to buy, presumably at some discount; a 40” flatscreen tv.


But this year’s prime pix features a lady walking sedately through the doors with no less than FIVE large televisions on two trolleys; and we must try and imagine the reasons, the purpose behind this electronic feast.


Answers, on both sides of the postcard, to No 11, Downing Street.
