Radio 4 You & Yours On Hop Price Inflation

Recommended Posts

On Call You and Yours with Julian Worricker this week we ask what impact is shop price inflation having on you, the rising cost of fuel and transport, and now the increase in VAT? Do you accept the reasons that we're given for the price hikes... are you having to change aspects of your lifestyle to accommodate them, or are you still finding ways to spot a bargain?

Just last week the UN warned that world market prices for rice, wheat, sugar, barley and meat will remain high or register significant rises in 2011 - perhaps replicating the crisis of 2007/08. Do we really understand why the global market impacts on the cost of food in our shops here in the UK?

An opportunity to contribute your views to the programme. Email youandyours@bbc.co.uk or call 03700 100 444 (lines open at 10am).

Too busy right now and I'll miss it.

Yeah, get on with some old waffle about your benefits not covering the petrol costs for a run out to by a first class stamp or something then hit them with this: "Look, some second world countries may be having genuine food shortages this year but no other western country is having the consistent long term high rate of price increases across the board as we are, and the reason for this is simply that the Bank of England are following a policy of deliberately high inflation with the sole aim of supporting high house prices in nominal terms, and until this country is allowed to have the sharp house price correction it needs there's going to be pain all round for the people of Britain, most of all those who least contributed to the problem in the first place by saving rather than over borrowing.

Inflated prices will put off tourists and people buying Blitish made? goods too if people get wage rises to match.

They should just change the name to "Me and Mine" -- a much more accurate refection of the stream of greedy boomers who call in to this programme complaining that their winter fuel payment might go missing while they're on their Saga cruise or that the council hasn't been out to personally shovel their driveway within 15 minutes of a snowfall.

Let's start our own podcast. I'll 'ring' in and then you send someone round to perform euthanasia on me.

Christ almighty! I've been annoyed with that bloody program for over 25 years!

And that's a long time!

It has always been that way! :blink:
