Ed is just so up with it, isn’t he?

Davey criticised supermarkets for raking in millions of pounds in profits while food inflation has soared. Large grocers have reported a drop in profits in recent weeks, but experts have said more could be done to help shoppers struggling with rising prices.

They’re profiteering as profits fall then……sigh.

  7. On my local high street three shops have closed in the last week. Two are to be replaced by new lessees. The local council have declined permission for a change of use to residential for a shop that has seen 6 failed businesses in the last 10 years.
