I was responding to TimP's comment "If the Sun is the best selling newspaper then god help us." I'm sure he understands the point.

I would have though that it was self-evident!

I doubt they were actually reading, most likely just looking at the pictures

I really enjoy their Bacon Rolls from time to time, but my point is that Greggs is no more a baker's shop than the Sun is a newspaper. Both have evolved to fulfil their particular market niche.

Pretty sure I would have ‘read’ the Sun back then along with the newly released Star, but that was 40+ years ago and topless women were far more interesting than any actual news (well, to me they were).

As the current news is mostly about Theresa May, be careful what you wish for!

I like Greggs, all those little horrors have to shut up when mum stuffs a sausage roll dummy in their mouths
