Banana smoothies and Westpac:
Jackie French writes: Re. "Crikey clarifier: the difference between home loans and banana smoothies" (yesterday, item 4). There's not much banana in a smoothie. The banana smoothie analogy is more accurate than Westpac may realise. As a committed banana smoothie consumer, I can testify the price of banana smoothies doesn't rise (or at least not in my selected sample) when the price of bananas goes up.
