It struck me today that costs are rising and incomes aren’t. It’s the poor that will feel this the most. More spent on the basics and less income to spend on the small things that enhance your life. Most will proabbably live hand to mouth. The thought of going for a pint or buying an item of clothing being sacrificed and, worst of all, no sense of hope that things will get better. You can’t help but feel the politicians have led us down a hole with false promises and their own ambition.
