The frog simmers gently..

Gas prices up 83%, electricity prices up 56% since 2003

Well the frog is not quite boiling but simmering gently....small wonder that economists scoff when faced with the argument that "historically low interest rates will keep disposable income high". The price of: water, gas, electricity, council tax, insurance has all ballooned over recent years... still not to worry, prices in the supermarkets have never been cheaper...`er 'ang on..

  • A clasic quote on my local TV news tonight that I thought you all might find as amusing as I did.

    On a ‘ special report’ regarding the pressures people are under as a result of rising energy costs, one bafftled consumer complained – “It seems that the price of everything is rising much faster than inflation these days”.
