Went to Been & Queued today for some tile adhesive and remembered that SWMBO
asked me to fix an extension lead that had a broken core in the middle. I
goes to the cable aisle and finds 5m of 1.5mm 3 core flex for £7.98!!
"Stuff that" says I and turned away only to see a 4m two gang extension lead
for £5.98, "That'll do" says I and picked one off the shelf. In the aisle
was one of the bargain baskets containing two extension leads 1 @ 1M x 4
gang and 1 @ 4M x 2 gang (exactly the same one as I had in my hand) for
£4.98!! How can this be right?
I noticed a similar price for 1.5 flex in my local Bodgit-Qwik. Then I
noticed a 25 m reel of the same for around 12 quid, so I had that. Their
pricing is pulled from the arse of a crack smoking monkey. They also sell
MasterPlug socket strips for nearly 40% more than Halfords (though the same
as Homebase to be fair).
But no-one takes the biscuit as much a PC World trying to charge over 12
quid give or take for a short Cat5e patch cable.
