Budget 2021 live: Rishi Sunak unveils spending plans for 'new age of optimism' - BBC News
The chancellor is announcing his plans in the Commons as he faces pressure to help people with rising prices.
While the poor count their pennies to make ends meet the rich bankers get tax reliefs to make them even more richer, Tory logic, Mr Sunak. Great question. The rising costs are causing me to spend more money, resulting in me having less money than I had before the costs had risen. There are also some things that I used to buy that I don't buy anymore, due to the afore-mentioned rising costs of said things. Thanks.
Lol... Hahaha Gr8 Joke Tbh Left with No more Household's or Nothing hence Living in d Streets Along with my Family... The Brexit dividend. Project fear they said. With its cheap products made by slaves, “Communist” China is in control of inflation worldwide. With its dumping, China will soon steal all our good jobs and force you into slavery. If China does not reinvent communism soon, we will all wish to die quickly of a virus.
Things are more expensive. Ask a stupid question get a stupid answer Thank Geoffreypreud you for mentoring me and showing me the right and wrong, to support me in every manner possible, always made sure we get the best ROI. Be careful what you vote for. I don’t seem to be able to wallow so often in a bath of champagne communism like AyoCaesar, really not happy. Also my ability to take part in solidarity protests with W⚓️s like Owen Jones will not be subsidised by my employer, it is sooooo unfair!!
Just make something up,but make sure you blame it on Brexit

Year on year over the last 10 years, it s amazing Insurance, house and life cancelled to pay for rising costs of fuel and food Is that a question or a mockery? Pine nuts
Gas Self respect I think if I was British I would put freedom of speech, liberty and movement as quite expensive now. Probably unaffordable. Post furlough stagflation is looming Who'd have thunk it. No doubt BoZo will blame that on Labour too even though the English National Party have been in power 11 years

I'm not from/in the UK, but buying stuff from the UK has become so expensive I've stopped doing it. Paid £7 for a hot chocolate and a bottle of water the other day so, that. Yes, Kettle crisps, the balsamic vinegar and sea salt ones... they used to be £1 a bag and now, within weeks they are £2. I'd move but I got no where to go :(
Living A house The 40year old single malt from Bowmore distillery is a bit pricey for every day drinking now. Well, well. Holidays around the country are pretty expensive right now even if you're booking for next year. Other than that it's business as usual. The Guardian Newspaper. I can’t spend the time reading this ‘campaigning journalism’ that seeks to make the news and not report it. It’s a disgusting attack on the free press and it’s important role in society. You are among the worst offenders in undermining truth in society.

Fears for UK recovery as record energy prices shut fertiliser plantsSteelmakers warn of unprofitability and an extra half a million homes face falling into fuel poverty .... and I thought that the Wind and Solar renewable power systems would come rushing to save the day. Although, I suppose they cannot when they are inherently unreliable. So we need more fossil fuels, not less apparently! ...and as a result there's a shortage of CO2 So now there's too much CO2 up there, and not enough down here?! Who knew... You really couldn't make this up!
