    I can't remember. Someone overheard and took offence.

    Apparently 90% of Britain's Blackcurrants are used to make Ribena. That doesn't leave much left for the rest of us.

    No one did cause people back then were too busy munching on corned beef and prawn cocktails. Fruit was something the Italians ate.

    Plenty of blackcurrant jam in Morrisons this morning though there was a strange dearth of such and bramble jelly about 5 or 6 weeks ago.

    I blame the EUSSR.

    Now what did I come in here for?
