Most of our population should eat less tbf, fatties everywhere. Inflation might perhaps do em good health wise, in a roundabout way.

Some have no real choice in the matter

Eat or heat Sad



But fat rich kids won't get the help
from inflation rising nor tax on sugar.


Inflation is massaged by the monitored
items being altered and new items
being added at peak price and removed
when price has fallen as item is no longer
popular.



They even changed the method of
calculating inflation (ffs) which
was seemingly to help the newly
Independent bank of England.


Supermarkets have been lifting prices
of popular items for decades.

Can only shop around so much too.

To be fair you're probably right, 95% of the food in supermarkets is c*ap anyway

Today I went into Aldi and Tesco today and the amount of obese people pushing trollies full of junk is saddening, I feel sorry for them most of the time in their masks and most walk with a gimp ffs

A funny but also sad story today though was an old bloke in Tesco going into the toilets, I started drying my hands on the blower and I could hear him screaming "oi oi" over it, I didn't think much of it but he then screamed "oiiii, oiiiii" started banging on the side panel, and his carer (A woman) had to come in to see if he was ok... I switched the blower off and the carer asked him what was wrong and he said "I fell into the fooking toilet".... I had to barge the door open and help the carer get him out the fooking thing. Bless him, but I couldn't stop chuckling in the job centre ffs. But he was a big fellow, overweight and struggling to walk into that toilet which is sad.

Quite typical of the attitudes of many are the posts on this thread and others. Food banks and hungry kids are all (apparently like Covid, vaccines, Elvis Presley’s death and moon landings) a complete fake and some sort of conspiracy. Actually hungry British kiddies are real and  numerous. If you recall it took a footballer to get Johnson to get kiddies some food during school holidays. Johnson meanwhile has presided over the scandalous corruption that led to even Handcock’s barman getting a dodgy PPE contract and his terrible government has continued to perpetuate the huge tax handouts to the stinking rich bankers, who of course largely fund the Conservative Party.

Fall in value of pound just ramps
up gas prices a bit more, and therefore
inflation.

Exports are cheaper, if we can get
em there.

Food banks are real, cot. Because people are now entitled. Most people in the older generation would rather be hungry than be seen begging for handouts.

In fairness this government has had much to deal with.

For starters it has had to decide how to spend the billions of weekly savings we got as a country from leaving the EU as per the bus adverts. Then it had to decide just how many Tory donors could be rewarded via the corrupt PPE contracts.

Priti had to decide how many people to bully and how many inappropriate meetings she should have. Johnson had to decide how many times he would lie about borders to the people of Northern Ireland.

Johnson had to decide not to sack Cummings over the eye test scandal and it took time. Then he had the same issue over Handcock’s trousergate scandal.

Never mind at least Reece Smugg had nanny to cry on and Gove could go clubbing in Aberdeen so it’s not all been bad news for them.

So it’s not been easy for them poor loves.

But in spite of these many problems, it would certainly seem that Johnson’s government has easily been the most dishonest,inept, incompetent, greedy and cynical in living memory.

Place bets he shops at Tesco that has rebranded as a Tesco Express and the prices hiked up by a huge margin but he's not worked it out. Probably instead walks around muttering about Tories and Independence.

*normal* tesco price is 2.95 for 9 toilet rolls:
https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/281055810
Tesco express prices are generally higher, often a lot higher as it's considered a premium price convencince store not a proper big shop supermarket, and 100s recently flipped to become an Express.

Also, I think (and this is the norm for a SCottish Separatist), he is likely just making stuff up and lying. It's effortless for SNP types.

Supermarket price comparison, 9 toilet roll. NONE, even for the fanciest most expensive super royalty compatible ar*e wiping material known to man, charge £4.75 for nine, never mind the normal stuff:

If your starving ie proper starving not just peckish or hungry, whereby your gut is churning and you feel weak and light headed because of a lack of suger and proper nutrients... you would take that food regardless of your pride trust me

You do some weird sh*t when starving, even going into an old persons home at the dead of night is done because you know there's food in there

And if a man is seeing his kids starving and his wife/girlfriend is giving him an earful etc, he will kill to get that last roll if it means his kids are eating for the night

You ain't seen nothing until you've seen a proper food shortage

I don't think this country has ever experienced proper hunger on the whole

There's always been ways of getting food the homeless don't find it a problem do they

As for kids they are more resourceful and adaptable than their given credit for, during WW2 they would huddle into big groups because they understood strength in numbers, they'd find food remember

So its all down to how strong minded you are

I certainly wouldn't want you in any trench near me, I'd want people who know how to put a full shift in and then some more.
