    Default Human rights and the UK

    Reading the news on various new papers. Why is the UK intent on becoming so much like 1930's Germany?

    Last week passing a law that ensures the surveillance on individuals is most intense of anywhere in the EU.
    Inflation out of control, massive debts.
    Extradite any UK citizen at the request of a US court without evidence.
    Boris is buying a water cannon.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Oh, I thought you meant inflation, not the ScooterMadeUp index based on house prices in London.

    But London is the centre of our entire economy.

    You think those rates of inflation since 2007 are okay? Food @ 27%. Glad my salary has gone up by the same amount since.

    27% in 7 years? That's 3.5% inflation. Hardly comparable to 1930s Germany is it?

    Monetary inflation has a certain horizon beyond which price inflation will follow. Worth noting.
    Also worth noting that you'll see inflation in chickens etc much sooner than you will in beef for example.

    Also worth noting that if, lets suppose, retailers are absorbing price inflation then that isn't to say that it doesn't exist.

    what is the logic behind that - and where would duck/quail/ squirrel feature in the inflation league
    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think
