The cost of a stamp has just gone up, along with our council tax. Bus fares are going up and despite the low cost of crude oil petrol is on the rise again. Prescription and dental prices are going up, as are car tax and water bills, and Sky TV subscriptions.
We also have the hidden rises, the ones where the price stays the same but the contents of your weekly shopping items have fallen. I believe a certain well-known brand of toilet rolls has cut the number of sheets on a roll, meaning you are now getting the equivalent of seven rolls for the price of nine.
Funnily enough, the coalition are telling us that inflation is at zero.
Believe what you will, and vote accordingly.
