Its very true Lynne i suppose they do it to make us believe prices are not rising i have noticed it with things like garlic puree, and tomatoe puree in the squeezy tubes, the weight has reduced by a few grams.

Life is very simple, if you want all the services,benifits, social care etc then all of us will have to pay more in tax. I would increase the basic rate by 4p, VAT to 30%, 50p on a litre of fuel, double the tax on fags and beer.  i would also chase those who evade tax and that will give you what the population wants but will you vote for me??  Now Mr Corbyn tells us we can have everything but ...

Why should a pensioner who has millions get winter fuel allowance those on benifits ie housing benifit will still get it.  The triple lock needs to be paid for so if you all want to pay more tax for my pay rise each year then fair enough but I am happy with whats on offer.

We have/ it does/ not really/

If someone elderly like me needs care and owns a £300,000 property why should it not be used to pay for care i am far from a Tory voter but find nothing wrong with the above.  Things have to change if you want everything free then be prepared to have huge increases in Tax,NI, and VAT now folk dont want that so this is the alternative.  Pensions we again have had it easy with the triple lock the ...

Indy Scott this is Dawlish and this sort of thing goes on all the time i wouldn't lose any sleep over it as it will be the same in 20 years time it's just how it is.
