I don't think he's in the money any more.

Such a joyless rendition too. He should have given it some, really. Mabye with a tambourine?

But put you on the dole this time

Because the cheap bastard didn’t pay royalties to Warner Bros for the use of the song. :x

Probably because he's doing a happy dance about a merger that could possibly put regular folk out of work.

Can you imagine the Daily Mail reaction, now Asda is owned by Muslims?

They'll bring in all sorts of them crazy Muslim laws, you won't be able to go to an Asda without covering your face, they won't allow men and women to hug and they will make women stand 2 meters behind men at the checkout...... Wait.... When did this takeover happen?

It means the grocer will return to majority UK ownership for the first time in two decades.

Something to celebrate, I suppose.

Compared to the competition, ASDA does need a bit of an overhaul. The shopping experience is the worst of the big stores, and their own brand food is routinely rated as crap. You can get away with having a poorer in-store experience if you're cheap and still good quality (like Lidl), but nothing quite compares to the LOUDNESS of an ASDA.

You forgot having test and trace take over Pret, then slowly closing all the Pret stores as they're relocated inside existing testing centres.
