Was brought home to me startlingly this morning.
The story about the deadly Sainsbury's banana spiders has hit the American news (that's globalisation) in a flurry of shrieks and "yeeeugh!!!"s.
The comments spawned a lurid cauldron of debate, with people sharing their spider/centipede/lizard/snake horror stories and much discussion on the wisdom of biting into a banana which had mold (sic) on the peel. Then someone pointed out: "In Socialist England you consume whatever you can get".
