Unfair Trade Produce

Extortion
Thought I would do a bit of a good deed this morning so I went and chose to buy some Fair Trade coffee and tea from one of those ghastly prole-holes called ‘A Supermarket’

Got home and looked at the receipt just to make sure it all totted up nicely, you know how it is, 'look after the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves.'

Anyway, when comparing  The Fair Trade good's prices with the normal prices for the equivalent product one noticed that the Fair Trade goods were approximately double what I
would normally pay.

What the hell kind of Fair Trade is that? I mean I went out to do myself a good deed and ended up paying double for some crap from some poor country.  Somebody tell me how it is fair that I have to pay double? It's a disgrace!!

These third world swines must be making a fortune out of charging me that kind of money! This is extortion! Who do they think they are?

Thank God for supermarkets charging reasonable prices for products from poor people. Helping them out of poverty and poorness into better lives of less poverty and poorness.
