It just further embellishes how out of touch some people are, when they even think people on the poverty line would consider buying a fresh chicken or convenience food. If it's not on the discount shelf or damaged, it doesn't go in your basket. If it's not on BOGOF, it doesn't go in your basket. And if you really want chicken, you make a trip to Morrisons 45-30 mins before they close for the day. Everyone on a budget knows that!
Sainsbury's also reduces short dated stock, that 2.75 chicken will seem like a real bargain. M&S used to just throw their old food stock at closing times, hardly surprising people were waiting, no doubt pesky EU H&S laws prevents this today.

I have established that a fresh meal with meat can be produced for 1 per head per meal, therefore a minimum pay worker could feed his family of 4 on two meals a day for just over 1 hours work a day. Hardly surprising that over 50% of the poor can afford to own, insure & tax cars.
