Letter: Out of the shopping basket

Click to follow
STRANGE that Brian Cathcart's feature on the differences in Irish shopping patterns ('I say Flora, you say Dairygold', 18 September), didn't reveal that the people in the Republic spend more on a national lottery - because . . . er . . . they have one.

What will he discover next? That people in Yorkshire buy Yorkshire Tea? That Geordies eat stotties? Or - hold that Letters Page - Mancunians drink Boddington's Beer?
