Inflation: Cost of living up despite Covid Christmas curbs
20/01/2021 | news | business | 812
The UK inflation rate jumps to 0.6% in December from 0.3% in November, led by higher transport costs.
We should be more concerned about the tories blocking protection for the nhs in trade deals and blocking scrutiny of those deals.
Tories line their own pockets and dont care about the population.

Oh dear dear dear

Poors

Spent less (due to lockdown) but prices kept rising SHARPLY

Just yesterday BBC reported prices for some products up 50%

Brexit started biting your nails poor brits
“ The biggest contributor was an increase in the cost of transport services such as air fares”.

All those middle-class Remainers going skiing and Llama-trecking in Tibet.

They keep saying "just wait until", working on the theory that even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

It pains them, and the MSM, that Brexit so far has not been the disaster they all hoped and prayed for, so they could say "I told you so"
Yes, Brexshit has already been bad but no-one "prayed" for it. In fact I pray that I have been wrong all along.

Repeat, I pray that I have been wrong all along.

Your problem is that you assume that everybody thinks like you do: You're motivated by WHIM and nothing but whim and you want "to win" for the sake of it, just like children do.

But my own motive is my prosperity.

I can't say I've noticed, I had £230 in my pocket in March and still have £230 today.

As I have followed the rules and stopped at home as much as possible, my bank balance has increased each month even though I am a pensioner.

I have no sympathy for those demanding an extra £20/week, as I suspect it will go on booze & fags and not kids meals.

How about living within your means, it works.

You are clearly economically inactive. You are supposed to be buying things you don’t need to prop up our service sector biased economy.

Tories have plans for people who behave this way. I’d keep my head down if I were you.

Just another Brexit bonus, plenty more to come.
The village idiot doesn't understand sarcasm so mind what you write in a post.

Trump supporting rednecks have proved that in full, eh mate?

This is nothing to do with the pandemic, or rising crude oil costs or anything else except Tory fat cats lining their pockets & the disastrous effects of Tory Brexit which will see food costs double by March.

There's a thought, did train tickets go up again this year?

Not looking forward to the council tax rise, it's a lot of money for very little in return these days, mine make you sort your own rubbish, collect it once every two weeks, and make excuses for not doing work.

This month, they can't process an abandoned car "because of covid restrictions" (despite no restrictions being placed on work).
"Sort your own rubbish" - ha ha ha.
Makes you sound like a complete idiot.

A non story. What gets on my t*ts is why do we have to have the Biden inauguration on BBC1, ITV and CHANNEL 4 & 5. Who cares what the the hillbillies are doing and who they voted for. Removed
This country is spiralling out of control

The useless lying corruption of this government is the main reason

By the time they have finished literally nothing will be let

This country is in real real danger

And Vladimir Putin and his Tory donning oligarchs are DELIGHTED

time to kick out the Russian supported Tories who are destroying our

Almost either side of my recent post are posts by someone called Leambloke. Just at a quick glance at his two posts and we have fule instead of fuel, absolut instead of absolute and genrators instead of generators. This is then folllowed by checks instead of cheques. Are we really to believe that this is a Professor of Economics or just another Labour supporter? Removed
