In The Road To Wigan Pier Orwell gives us the weekly diet of a poor family on benefits.
50% of the weekly cash is spent upon food. And he details out what that is spent upon.
So, anyone actually got that list? Can’t seem to find it, Google Fu is failing. And then, then – anyone want to price it up at today’s prices? Go with the Aldi/Lidl/Sainsbury’s Basics range sorta prices.
Or, perhaps, if someone can find that list I’ll have a go.
Would be interesting to price that diet as against modern wages…..
