Does one actually shop? Harrods have delivered ours for years so one has absolutely no idea, that's why one has a housekeeper ;o}
Back to reality ;o} I also do the shopping and scored 4/7 like Mr Mistoffelees. I got the bread question wrong, but could tell you the prices of bread flour, because like the PM, me and the breadmaker make our own bread.
'any serious question will likely be deflected and a 'stock' answer, to whatever question they WANT to answer would then be produced, anyway'
That seems to me to be moving along the road to saying that all interviews with politicians are a waste of time.
'better to have a bit of fun'
Is that really how we want political debate to be handled? We know all about the contempt for politicians. How do you address that if you can't tell the difference between an interview with a politician and a comedy panel show?
It's worth saying that, in the linked quiz, I got the price of beer wrong because I don't drink. As Brumas noted Cameron doesn't buy bread. Why should he know the price?
Of course, as ever, it is damned if you do... If Cameron had reeled off a list of food prices I'm sure someone would have accused him of wasting his time learning trivia rather than dealing with important issues.
I got a result of 6/7, probably because I keep up with prices on a fairly daily level. And spreading my shopping visits throughout the range of outlets.
But I venture to ask the question about 'average', because in my opinion, each household or person might base their own average on something entirely different to me and mine. Take one of the most staple foods, and that is bread. The price range can be very widely different, depending on the person's preferences. Take my local Co-ops for an example, why buy 'top of the range' bread at say £1.40 or above, and later find that this same bread is on reduced offer of 30 pence or so, because the store as overstocked. it doesn't take much thinking to realise saving can be made on most things, if wise decisions are made by perhaps the more canny?.
