  1. Yep thats whats caused all this or at least been the main driver
  2. Dow Jones went up ? also who cares about real world events when we have a Birthday cake to discus.
  3. They will always find a reason not to, and find reasons to hit the printer again in the near future
  4. Free cash close thread know loads who wont work now or lets be more precise wont work on the system so get black money and also the handouts
  5. Blackpool and Scarborough have them already along with the feral kids
  6. So the state pension will rise by just 3.1% when they should have been getting around 8% under the triple lock or at the least real inflation of around 6%, how many votes has this cost them with these manipulated figures.
  7. Thats just it nobody wants to work after so long doing country walks days at seaside etc etc and not having to do anything for it.
  8. Its being reported that council tax will rise 5% to cover the shortfall for social care as the local councils dont believe they will receive the central money raised from the NI increase. Double whammy again
  9. 100% this, could you imagine the outrage if lets say Boris and Rishy held a joint news conference and stated that no more free money was available as we are so much in debt . So fit and healthy people of working age will unfortunatly now if they want money will have to earn it
  10. Just been in a pub in Otley West Yorkshire nice venue by the river you still wasnt allowed to go to the bar so ordered 2 pints of lager at the table price was £3.95p each suppose average price for the area, when they came they were 2/3rds of a pint I questioned this was told that they are now a standard offering and that is all I could order(no halfs or pints) when the bill came it also had added 10% service charge. Wonder if things like this are included in the CPI rubbish
  11. My wifes going to a monthly 'my house has increased more than your's' party next week , wont tell her this 😉
  12. Went around 10 diy stores yesterday in Yorkshire for a bag of cement to finish off a project at home with no luck , even tried to borrow a bag from a local building site near us which I was informed was shutting down apart from security work due to lack of materials.
  13. Thanks for the replies to my query , very enlightening would imagine a real storm is brewing and begin raining sooner rather than later, very few people i know could even begin to save the amounts needed.
  14. I call myself just an ordinary guy and receive a works final salary pension of 13k which i took at 55 and now a state pension of 6400 (serps reduced ) and manage quite well was looking at the amounts my sons would have to put in to achieve a similar works pension anyone got any ideas they are 40 /41 in age
  15. Not to forget a bit of tax to pay as well on the 13k
  16. Council tax up 5% virtually everywhere dont think thats in the figs but should be, so somebody living alone in say an average house on a average state pension of 6400 pays 30% of that straight back .
  17. Starts reducing to 70% in July down again to 60% in September, this is set in stone i believe think its Oct when Rishy starts plucking the magic money tree once again
  18. Well we welcomed another 562 in from Dover yesterday with all their skills and whatever else , and thats not counting the ones that we dont know about now shipped off to the hotels around Heathrow , this total madness has to stop or is it being welcomed which i am beginning tho think so.
  19. Just back from Scarborough lots of shops businesses are still closed, those that are open lots with job adverts in the window seems nobody wishes to work anymore with all the freebie handouts available.
  20. Most pubs /hospitality are now benefiting from a vat reduction on average for a pint of beer /lager of 60p, this from Rishi's generosity with our money. Then in Oct 2021 it drops to around 28p a pint reduction and holds till April 2022 . So anyone pushing up prices with this in mind is just profiteering.
  21. Yep our local opened today 10p on all beers from Jan pricing, also no service at the outdoor tables you went to the bar to order only 4 people allowed inside at any one time they put your drinks on a table at side of the bar and you took them to your table outside to consume, what a farce of the reg's wont be going back anytime soon freezing as well.
  22. Managed to get in the hairdressers today my haircut had gone up £1 thats a 20 % increase , the manager had put a sign up which said due to losses from being unable to trade we are sorry to have to increase our prices. Bet this is replicated all over the country in so many small business. But the next inflation figs will report somthing ridiculously low and irrelevant to the actual figure
  23. I enquired about this and got this reply The rate on the 123 current account will drop from 0.6% to 0.3% for new and existing customers from 12 April
