£1 does not go a long way

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Front Page -

IN the Third World, peo­ple have to try to live on a food bud­get of £1 per day.

If they vis­ited Peter­bor­ough, a fam­ily-of-four would have to pool to­gether all of their bud­gets to buy a sin­gle hot dog from London Road sta­dium.

It costs a Posh fan £ . 0 to buy a hot dog, while pies, pasties and sausage rolls all cost £2.80.

It would take two of the 1.4 bil­lion peo­ple liv­ing in poverty to club to­gether to buy bovril or soup, which costs £2.

The only thing they could pur­chase with their daily bud­get is a packet of Mc­Coys crisps or a choco­late bar, which cost £1 each.
