There are signs of food price inflation.

This was on ZeroHedge today. It’s not the best article but does highlight that food prices are rising.

https://www.zerohedge.com/commodities/global-food-prices-rise-seventh-consecutive-month

I notice Intrepid Potash announced that they’d agreed significantly higher prices for Potash. Which again ties into the expectation of higher food prices.

This is a real mindfuck. For years Liebour have been calling for social care budgets to be increased, now Rishi has announced it they're calling it "absurd". How can anyone take Sir Kier Picanto seriously?

I think that price is a little light but all the internet wants to do is flog me a used one.

Yep, got it, cheapest was the 1.2 E with the crappy 60PS engine at £6890.

SE had 4 more PS as well.

Last car battery I bought was 8 years ago and cost £40... needed a new one the other day, smaller car, smaller battery, £98 was the cheapest I could get.

I'm pretty certain my wages haven't more than doubled in the last 8 years.

I think we need another 'Rip off Britain' campaign like there was 21 years ago. 

New car buyers went to Europe to secure fairer prices on RHD models. However, it might be a bit trickier this time around.

When it builds it will be obvious. It isn't yet for the simple reason of artificially suppressed demand.

1. Main points

  • The Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH) 12-month inflation rate was 0.6% in November 2020, down from 0.9% in October 2020.

  • The largest contribution to the CPIH 12-month inflation rate in November 2020 came from recreation and culture (0.24 percentage points).

  • Falling prices for clothing, and food and non-alcoholic beverages resulted in the largest downward contributions (of 0.17 and 0.09 percentage points respectively) to the change in the CPIH 12-month inflation rate between October and November 2020.

  • These were partially offset by upward contributions from games, toys and hobbies, and accommodation services.

  • As a result of the increased restrictions caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, 72 CPIH items were identified as unavailable in November, accounting for 13.9% of the basket by weight; the number has increased from eight in October but is down from 90 in April, the first full month of lockdown; for November, we collected a weighted total of 83.8% of comparable coverage collected before the first lockdown (excluding unavailable items).

  • The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) 12-month rate was 0.3% in November 2020, down from 0.7% in October.

2008 they were giving them away as the recession hit and there was an over supply.

Last time we saw capitalism in action.

I bought a Honda repsol Blade in 2007 for £7000.. I sold it 5 years later £5500

Now they are still selling for £5500, 2007 was a 1 year only model though,, should have kept it..

And a new fireblade is about 20k +
