  • Millions of public-sector and private-sector job losses coming soon. VAT rise to 20%. Price of clothes, food, and petrol rising strongly. Wages stagnating.

    There will be a bloodbath on the high street over the next twelve months. I wouldn’t want to be invested in retail commercial property or shopping centres. Who will be the next Woolworths?

  • I’ve noticed the clothing quality has nosedived at places like Next and M and S since the credit crunch.
    My sis and I used to buy heaps at every Next sale but we hardly go in there now.
