Sadly, that about sums it up. We've sold our family silver and wonder why we pay a fortune to use our own plates and cutlery that now belong to foreign investors.
Don't forget to tell Sid!
No items with a precious metals content were actually realised in exchange for payment of money.
No one actually paid a fortune (however this may be quantified) - even if this may be implied in this post.
The ownership of crockery, etc by foreign nationals is merely figurative and the suggestion that they now posess eating utensils once owned by ourselves is for illustrative purposes only.
Sid is not a real person. He was an imaginary person, used in tv adverts as a memorable catchphrase. He has no actual connection to British Gas, Centrica, The Gas Board or effing Tom Cobley and all.
