You were right..my memory is failing. just been to the shed..with a match as iIcan't remember where the torch is and looked at the packet. Sadly, it was £1.25 for 1, yes one blade.. that includes the metal bit........but not the fancy aerofoil that keeps the blade stuck to the screen on the drivers side though.
Did look at the back and yes it was engineered by blind fingerless children in a far east sweatshop but if we don't buy them they go hungry....right?
I could go back to buying branded, who put a nice label on the same or similar product, and add a huge mark up or maybe not and they really do pass on that premium in good terms and conditions to their workers..........eeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr? or maybe not.
A big dilema here..........I don't know the answer. That annoys me, because I wish I did........I did a quick straw poll of the family after your post came in.
Not one came up with an alternitive. I'm not sure there is an answer.
