Something else I've noticed happening. Go and buy your non-shop-brand battered / bread-crumbed chicken and look at the ingredients.

A few months ago, it was around 90% pure breast meat - I was happy I wasn't putting anything too "processed" in my mouth.

Now, today - look at the pack. Around 60-65% pure meat. The rest is now water, pea starch, and so on.

Either prices go up, or our standard of living (and quality of our food) goes down. I already know people in Singapore and China that won't buy anything but FRESH 100% breast meat - and it's very affordable over there.

Scary stuff, really. But I guess it's happening - just that no-one is noticing.

reminds me of a quote by the queen of france before she was dethroned and had her head cut off for being out of touch with the population.

I bought an M & S salad for £2.29 last week. A few weeks ago it was £1.99. 6 months ago, it was 2 for £3 (£1.50).

I purchased that same salad and also a bottle of Still Mineral Water, last week the water was 60p Today that same bottle was 69p!

I think I see your point. We should invest in salad. :)

Er, make your own. :)

Though I suppose if everyone did that another bit of the "Miracle Economy" would go.

Great that added value stuff ain't it.

Drink tapwater.

Maybe its just M&S

Boots still do meal deals at £2.99

Yeah, but their sushi packs are smaller than 6 months ago.

Still bloody good value, for the price of a crappy Ginsters sandwich, I can get a large bottle of freshly squeezed orange juice, a good sandwich, salad or sushi pack & a bag of cashews.

Stealth Pricing Policy

They lower the price of ready made curries by 5%, then add 10% to the price of toilet paper!

Tissues have also gone up by about 10% in Tesco, more people crying perhaps?

I've also noticed that M&S pizzas have also got smaller?

Especially the green ones, they're the healthiest.

I am finding Sandwiches much cheaper these days.

Last year a Romanian Sandwich in Soho would cost around 120 quid, today less than 45.

Spit Roast also are much cheaper, at least 50% this year.

Maybe Gordon should empty his shopping basket and change the products the reflect the low inflation we all enjoy today.

I'm glad I've hoarded TP then. I buy TP once a year in Costco in huge quantities.

I like those M&S pasta pots. The small ones are now £2 (were £1.80!) and the big ones are now £3.00 (were £2.80) ! I was outraged. ! Where's my salary increase to match.

Stick that in your CPI basket and smoke it why don't you.
