Lidl bargains

Just seen they had some dual action stirrup type air pumps for a fiver - yes 5. I have one and they are excellent - will shift enough air to work on my big RIB!!!

Good grief C-P!

Has your disillusionment with British Retail driven you into the arms of those Teutonic Traders? Will your pride and joy be properly inflated when puffed up with a German Gadget?

It's not a German product - and it's a loss leader so I am actually damaging their profits!!!

Some of the hardware in Lidels is pretty good - the food is recycled toxic waste.

A mate of mine once made me a cup of tea using lidel's tea bags - they were a new invention - waterproof tea bags - after 10 mins the water was still crystal clear!!!

I dont agree with that .. some of their cold meats are very good, next door we have a Tesco and even from their 'best' range .. Lidels ham is far nicer & better quality

Well it looks the same as the one I bought from the Range and that fits my Rib no problems. Had to get an adaptor for my quicksilver though.

And it's not a foot pump - 100x better!!!

'ANGLO SAXON'... loose translation... 'ENGLISH GERMAN'.Just a shame WE forgot how to make things!Germany still THE biggest exporting nation in the world[yes bigger than the U.S or China!] so they must be doing something right!! As long as they dont start exports of the 1914/1939 variety we should be ok!Still reckon the BEST of 'British stacks up against anybody!!
