Story is Dunnes Stores are doing fruit and veg for 6 cents. Nothing yet on their website.

And I would find it very difficult to criticise families for buying fresh fruit and veg for really cheap. Sure the supermarket system is broken on so many levels, just don't take it out on families struggling enough with the endless recession, massively increased taxes, and services that you now have to pay extra for.

It's a bit of a no-brainer in the states, where you can turn "right on red" pretty much everywhere, as long as you yield to pedestrians and oncoming traffic. Wouldn't save quite so much time here, where the traffic planners of the country seem remarkably loathe to install even just flashing ambers at left turns.
