Households in fuel poverty jump

More strain on household budgets leading to difficulties paying mortgages and less desire to borrow.

  • Whilst it is a fact that current inflation is disproportionately affecting essentials rather than luxury items, and in so doing is adversely affecting those on the lowest incomes; I do dislike the use of word ‘poverty’ in this context.

    I first came face to face with real poverty about 25 years ago on a trip to the Phillippines, and it was a bit of an eye-opener. Using the word to describe someone who just happens to spend more than 10% of their income on fuel debases the word.

    This is hardship perhaps – but not poverty.

    Slowly, slowly, gently, gently.

    It’s called social conditioning. Think back to only 3 years ago. Do the math, you are more than capable..

    Then look into bio chemistry/cancer.

  • what UT says. I begin to wonder what could cause an HPC in this country.
    Bank collapses, credit crunch, business collapses, currency crash, massive gov cutbacks and still no major HPC, with prices actually increasing in London. No doubt we have low IRs to thank for this.
