Excellent time to visit Moscow/St. Petersburg at these rates. They are both stunning in the snow.

A room at the Astoria Hotel in St. Petersburg (a nice 5 star hotel in Rocco Forte chain) will cost £288 for three nights this coming weekend. A similar room in London at Brown's Hotel in the same chain will cost you £1,300. Anyone up for a weekend break?

How's the Labour "cost of living crisis" strategy shaping up?

Well, with all working benefits frozen or cut and hundreds of thousands of non workers being denied benefits - pretty good I suppose.

It is a splendid situation for all those management types and 'non-job' people on high salaries tho'.

doubt you could get a visa that quick though. Think they've brought in fingerprinting for visas now?

Talking of Russkies, certainly getting no deflation on my gas bill. Got a smart meter now and price is shocking. Probably need to move away from British Gas.

And it's the latter group who will have much more influence over the outcome of the next election.

(my original remark is facetious, of course - I was predicting much the same a couple of years back)

Deflation is the only way many can feel that they have had a pay rise.....not what you earn it is what the money you do get gets you....

Not too many on here disagreeing with this anymore.

A few figures off the top of my head......petrol litre.......£1.399 to £1.139

Milk......................57p to 49p a litre

Flat screens televisions 32"...... £300 to £150

Cost of new micro minis...Peugeot 107 etc....£9000 to £7000

Washing machines basic...£250 to £150

Council tax...flat for about five years

Insurance premiums steadily falling....my house insurance same as about 30 years ago...£100 pa

Deflation bring it on.
