I always had a laugh at the M & S adverts which drivelled on about 'these are not ordinary strawberries/raspberries - these are M & S berries, grown on sunny, rainfree, Scottish hillsides, blah, blah, blah. To which I, formerly a berry picker, always wanted to add ' and picked by children, benefits cheats, gypsies and illegal immigrants'. If people knew the tricks berry pickers employ to increase the weight of their baskets, they would grow their own fruit as I do.
NB: My categories of pickers do not illustrate my own predjudices - they are lifted from the DM school of journalism.
