Re: Rising cost of living

I'd say we are a tad off topic folks. Let's get back to the rising cost of living please.

Re: Rising cost of living

Nestle announce further price rises.

A quick scan of their product range HERE reveals most of their products are non-essential.

Easy to dump their brands.

Anyone who has been a university student since the mid 1990s is likely to have been encouraged by their friendly neighbourhood Students Union to ditch Nestle anyway. Their business practices, especially in the developing world, are … disappointing.

Re: Rising cost of living

The baby formula story is proper villainous behaviour, you would think it a plot from a film.

Isnt that normal for students ? there is always something to boycott.

Personally I like Kit-Kats and Smarties, and wont be ditching them (nor would I have in the 1990's).

The chunky kit-kat is one of the finest additions to civilisation that any society has introduced.

Both products of course the creation of Rowntrees, a philanthropic British Quaker company. They were the victim of a hostile takeover by Swiss Nestle in the 1980s.
Chunky Kit Kats have steadily got smaller and more expensive ....

Details on the £400 Energy Bill Support Scheme.
Quote:
The money, part of the Energy Bill Support Scheme, will be paid in six instalments.
Households will see a discount of £66 applied to their energy bills in October and November, and £67 a month from December to March 2023.

Re: Rising cost of living

Who ever the new PM will be it could be very short lived for them... will the common person accept what is going to happen to their energy bills and living standards or could there be protests just like that lovely Thatcher Pole Tax disaster.
