    Man charged GBP55k for a single beer in Manchester hotel - BBC News

    As long as no idiot arranges a CUK meet up there all will be fine.

    Either the chap had £55K in cash in a current account - which means he is earning pitiful interest on it compared to a savings account, or he has a credit card with a £55K or greater limit - which is not sensible when used to pay for small items due to the risk of fraud.

    It was probably one of those hipster craft brews with twigs and fruit in. I'll bet it was a 'schooner' too, not even a pint.

    Is that good? We only get third party as the country always finds the money for a replacement should it be necessary.

    I hope you asked your accountant if you could expense that.....

    On a serious note, I had better get ready for the social in December! This could cost me more than a divorce.....
