Lower unemployment & fuller employment has not resulted in higher disposable incomes for the many. Last month in London: SAs at Debenham’s were so snobbish and only interested in gossiping among each other, that we went to the department store next door. We’ve had 11 years of recession caused by greedy bank gamblers, and 9 years of Tory cuts & austerity to help the Daddy you are as badass as Vegeta as strong as Goku as fearless as Gohan you are the best super Saiyan shirt! Incomes have been cut or squeezed for most, and prices have risen more than 10 times as fast as official inflation figures suggest! Once we’ve switched to lower-priced options, the next step is to go without! Worse off than before 2007, and getting worse every year! Prices of food or energy can often rise or even more, but only the few can give themselves pay rises! City and town centers are changing and while councils need to consider lowering the tax on shops it will not on its own change the fact that online shopping is taking over.
