Just when you thought the internet couldn’t get any weirder, this column popped up in The Telegraph.
After seeing a photograph of prime minister Theresa May picking up some groceries in the posh supermarket, Rowan Pelling decided to pen an opinion piece stating that the image meant Waitrose shoppers no longer had to apologise for their choice of upscale food store.
As if that was ever the case in the first place.
Understandably, people on Twitter picked up on the ridiculousness of the idea and decided to have some fun with it.
“Who hasn’t stood in front of a Waitrose freezer and gazed longingly at the Tanzanian Chocolate ice cream with Blood Orange Sorbet? Or felt their life is incomplete without Crisp & Zingy Mojito Chicken Cigarellos,” Pelling writes in the controversial piece.
Indeed, who hasn’t?
“That’s her core message, after all: hard-working Britons should be free to spend their post-tax loot as they please and without apologising for it. Even if it’s on quails eggs and prosecco.”
