  1. How are things going for the average man in Russia, are they ghaving food rises of 30% and fuel up 60%?
  2. Dont they give you a crap rate like 2p a KWH when you send power to the grid??? Whats the economic case for say an average detached house with 6 panels , how lmuch would it cost how long before you get a return? What is the life of the panels?
  3. Retired house paid for , £1200 per month pension income enjoy watching what is happening but am more worried about the state of the economy and price rises than I can evedr remember, Been on here for 15 years expecting a huge crash, maybe will happen this winter.
  4. Can someone paste the article for us, I dont want to fill in a subscription to the FT. I worked for Samworth Brothers who had 3 factories making sandwiches for Tesco and others, they had over 1000 employees at 1 of the sites in Leicester many of the workers were asians then when the EEs were allowed in they took up many of the jobs, Not sure what the situstion is now, COVID really hammered their business.
  5. I think we are having a good summer for blackberries. I will go and pick some and make a crumble with Damsons picked from my own tree. Yummee!!!!
  6. Morrisons have put the price of their fruit scones baked in store up again onw £1.89 for four . JUst a 90% rise this year.
  7. Carry on as I have might splash 20k plus on a motor or kitchen. Get the popcorn in and watch what happens to everyone else.
  8. Good, shame for those who thought the good times could last forever. 500k house 2 new cars on PCP some will be getting a rude awakening in the next 12 months. Today its raining so after a bit of shopping might go and visit a couple of local show homes they are now open pre Covid style with no appointments needed.
  9. Wish I was as hopeful as Blanchflower that inflation will drop to zero!l Why would you put that up on Social media??
  10. decided to panic early. I bought 600kgs coal and 4 tons of kiln dried logs. £850. Last time I heard Coal was £400 a ton, so how much is wood for a ton. Will that be your winter sorted ?? Where are you? I am a bit of a1/2 glass empty type of guy nad think its going to be very grim this winter lets hope for a mild one.
  11. Thanks Shlomo for that, Ive learned what a whale is!!! I see a story in the DM that the Aston Martin share price is tanking. Whod have thought that would happen?????
  12. I picked the Pie to photograph as I was shocked at the price some ramping up there. I ended up buying a £1.00 baguette
  13. Went into my local Co op taking the pi** seems to be the name of the game, £5.25 6 tins of beans, £2.85 for a Faraybentos pie. Wasnt that long ago you could get the beans for £3.00 and a pie for £1.00 I know you dont have to buy them and other shops will be cheaper , shows the Co op mindset
  14. Why the panic about a recession?? We have them regularly if it brings fuel and house pri es down and gives a few a rude awakening it wont be a bad thing.
  15. Heres some anecdotal news on the Brick sector. Ibstock have put a 30% surcharge on for Energy costs. Michekmarsh are closing their hand made brick department at Shepshed. They cant make it pay , Not sure how many are being made redundant. Expect more news of this type from now on.
  16. A couple of examples of rises I have noticed, Morrisons fruit scones now £1.50 for 4 2nd 25p rise this year. Cat had to go for his annual check up, 2 years ago was £30 now £45 .
  17. Soft landing??? I cant see that, fuel keeps rising, another £800 on the fuel price cap come october, Rishi has said there might be available next year, the working man is toast!. Get fue lback to £1.30 a litre and the cap £1000 and we will be in clover. Is there any chance of that Slim or none?
  18. I nearly mentioned that there are lots of flash motors,not many Dacias and old bangers. It appears that the showhomes are now open and no need to book an appointment for a viewing so will go and have a look
  19. I dont know if I agree with that, theyve just given everyone £400 for their energy bills they can think of something for homeowners. Today I have been on a bit of a tour in my town round some of the new deve;opments going up. They are from Davidsons Barratts, David Wilson, Cadeby homes and Redrow, I was taking a leisurely ride round on my pushbike they all look very similar small windows, Georgian style small frontage to the road and closely packed in to each other. Most of these are 350 k and over in the East Midlands, many had nice motors outside as well. When it hits the fan there will be carnage on these new estates.
  20. Watching CNBC Bailey comes over quite well
  21. Why? it is going to be horrible, are you a sadist?
  22. Reminds me of Auberon Waugh in his Sunday Telegraph column about 30 years ago, he thought those at the bottom of the ladder should live in Portacabin shanty towns till they had the deposit for a house. Someones making some serious money at these caravan parks. I live in Nw Leics and a lot of Holiday lodges seem to be being put on sites some are upwards of 300k for a 50 year lease , then you have the running costs on top.
  23. Rich Tea Bubble, £2.19 for a couple of packets of biscuits, sorry its 90 degrees out.
