(Coronavirus) arbitrage

A teenager was sent home from school after being caught selling shots of hand sanitiser to his fellow pupils at 50p a go.

His mother, Jenny Tompkins, from Leeds, posted a picture of him arriving home earlier after his entrepreneurial exploits at Dixons Unity Academy.

In a post on Facebook, she said it was hard to discipline her son when his “dad called to say he was a legend”.

He plans to use the £9 he made to buy a kebab, she added.

Some respondents to the post, which was shared nearly 130,000 times, praised his efforts.

One said “can’t fault his logic”.

Others reminisced about selling cigarettes for £1 a go.

Someone else said: “Bet he gets an A in economics.”
