$21 (~£11) - Thats ridiculous... That would just about get you a bag of grocery shopping over here in the UK.

The prices are rising everywhere. Over here, a single bus journey costs £2 (thats $4). Complete rip-off.

But hats off to that man - a british politician would never have the guts to do something like that.
