By George – It Asda Be A School Uniform For A Tenner!

krankies.jpgONCE upon a time, celebrities wouldn’t be seen dead in cheap and cheerful high-street rags. But with everyone from Beyonce to Kylie embracing the likes of Top Shop and H&M, low-cost can now mean high-fashion.

Now it seems that school children too will be able to get suited and booted at uber-low prices.

According to the Mail, Asda are set to introduce new school uniforms, including shoes, for less than a tenner in a move that could start a new price war in the competitive £1 billion school uniform market.

The “value” outfit from Asda’s George range will undoubtedly be the cheapest on the market for three to six-year-olds while larger outfits for the six to ten age bracket will start at just £12.96.

While the news will be welcomed by cash-strapped parents up and down the country, one wonders just how many third-world children are being exploited to make the garments.

None, says George, who maintain the clothes have been “ethically” sourced from factories which are regularly audited.

Expect to see Ant and Dec modelling their new line in three-to-six year-old outfits this summer. If Kate Moss and Madonna can do it, why can’t they?
