Merry dairy Christmas!

So Sainsbury's and Asda have admitted price fixing on dairy products, and following an investigation by the Office of Fair Trading revealed that shoppers paid an additional £270m, the two retailers have agreed to pay fines totalling £116,000,000.

Who gets that then? Are the Government tracing everybody who paid 15p extra for half a pound of cheese, 15p extra for a quarter pound of butter, and three pence on a pint of milk? I suspect not.

It couldn't be that the Government will just take the money to use on their latest ridiculous hare-brained scheme? Because that would be unfair, wouldn't it?
