    Default Rising cost of Brexit leaves UK households with less cash for treats

    Oh dear!

    "When asked about the outlook for their disposable income, almost a third (31%) of people saw themselves having less money in 12 months’ time once all household bills and essentials are paid."

    Probably the basis that the reporter thought it would make good journalism e.g. not a shred of evidence.

    It starts in March mate. Prices spin the shops are going to jump by 10-15% minimum on imported goods. Forget all this crap about absorbing prices, shops like to keep a profit margin. For most non food goods we work on a 2.4 multiple.

    So a dining table and chairs for example may cost a retailer at 250 exc vat, will mark it for 600 or 599 to make the customer thinks it's a bargain. If the cost to the retailer say goes to 300' then you're up to 720. Yes the profit increases, but the margin stays the same.

    You're all fooked come March.

    Nothing to do with Brexit and everything to do with the gap between rich and poor getting wider.

    The JAMs may think Brexit will make things better. But its meet the new boss - same as the old boss.
