Recommended Posts

And guess what, they're blaming the Pound / Euro exchange rate....

Yup, definitely deflation on the horizon. <_< Petrol's also back over a quid a litre now.

< Edit to add - Ford also increased their prices in February, according to ITN News. At this rate, Ford cars will soon double :D Let's see if the public are as happy about that as they are house prices going up.... >

Well it is no surprise. I and other have been banging on about this for ages. You cannot depreciate your currency without importing inflation.

Anyone who buys anything remotely "techy" and imported has known this for at least a year.

Some stuff i watch is up 70% on 15 months ago.

With re to Ford.

A. Im glad i bought my car when i did. Because of the 2 rises since scrappage started and all the toys i got i could probably cover my outlay after a years driving. Not that i will mind.

And B. Much more obviously, the scrappage "discount" has been eaten. Whole. :lol:

Brown fails to understand the big wide nasty world once again.

Maybe if just ONE of his cabinet had ever had a proper job they would have seen this coming.

Twats all.

What you lose in volume you can make up in margin.

This.

Whilst the earlier increases were largely a function of the deprecation of Sterling, this one, is about profit.

Volumes are down, however Ford market share has increased.
