John Lewis shocks retailing with worst sales fall for year

John Lewis sent a shudder through the high street and sparked fresh fears over the health of the British economy yesterday by reporting its biggest sales decline for almost a year. John Lewis’s statement came as the AA reported that petrol prices had climbed to a record high, with unleaded petrol rising to 104.49p a litre. Motorists are now spending £500 million more a month to fill up their cars than a year ago and they face a further rise in petrol duty on April 1. George Buckley, the chief UK economist of Deutsche Bank, said: “I’m afraid that John Lewis’s figures are a sign of things to come. Debt repayments are going up, house prices are going down, taxes are at a 20-year high.

  • Hardly surprising under this Government – “Debt repayments are going up, house prices are going down, taxes are at a 20-year high” – looks like we are heading for a re-run of the 1970’s under Dennis Healy

  • I must admit that things will get a lot worse as virtually everyone I talk to during the working day has started to feel distinctly worse off.

  • When is the next MPC meeting??????……….expect to see a lot more of this from VI’s in the search for “non”-essential rate cuts. When Mervyn warned Britons to expect a lower standard of living he was ofcourse refering to huge inflation in the cost of living due to rate cuts to bolster up a fraudulent financial sector and miss-managed retail sector. “GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF BRITAIN.”
