Recommended Posts

especially when then are picking stuff that is going to drop significantly in price in the near future!!!!!!

Until it becomes too expensive to import them from China, then they'll drop them again quick like a hot turd.

How long can they insist that inflation is measured by the shit people just don't need to survive?

The ONS are actually a victim of their own success, the department only received a budget increase inline with inflation. I shit you not, that's partly why their figures are so crap.
