Waitrose expands Essentials range for hard-up bankers
Supermarket Waitrose has extended its range of ‘Essentials’ food, to include several expensive products, such as foie gras, bluefin tuna, kobe beef, fugi and lobster, which had previously been beyond the means of bonus-less hedge fund managers and venture capitalists.
‘It’s fantastic news for everone at the bank’ said Henry Morgan a 49-year-old bond trader. ’I really missed the odd bit of saffron but now thanks to Waitrose I can afford to add some to my seafood linguini. The addition of fugi is particularly helpful as I’ve invited Alistair Darling and his wife round for dinner next week and I was going to poison him with arsenic, but now Waitrose has saved me the trouble.’Click to send this story to a friend
