Thread: There's still time to stock up on food and other essentials

  1. #1

    There's still time to stock up on food and other essentials

    Tesco, Asda, etc, do deliveries to customers' front doors for a relatively small cost.

    I use Asda the most. There I can order an amazing array of items from milk to a TV remote control. Depending on what time you want an order delivered, it'll cost from one pound to five providing the total order exceeds 40. There's a limit of 10 per whatever item is ordered. There's no limit to how much a total spend is.

    I note we are being primed to expect an inflation rate of 10% before this year's end.

    My contact reckons whatever the official manipulated number is at, real inflation will be 25% to 35%. The catalyst being the skyrocketing cost of petrol and diesel. He said don't be surprised should the price of both hit 6 per litre (26 a gallon) during next winter.

    He also forecast bread, milk and a long list of other foodstuffs will quadruple in price by then as the supply chain buckles... what we want but don't need will be affected far less. I daresay a vast number of businesses will close as disposable income retracts at an accelerating rate.

    The good news, according to him, is that no nukes will fly and there'll be no WW3. There will though be endless fearmongering about the prospect of both occurring. Instead, the plan is to sustain and prolong the Ukraine-Russia conflict, and should fear subside and selected populations get uppity over the cost of living, expect China to invade Taiwan and perhaps Iran and Israel to exchange ballistic missile strikes.

    Your contact seems to have fingers in many pies. What good luck to know an expert in grocery supply chains, macroeconomics, russian nuclear strategy, Chinese foreign policy and even the price of petrol six months down the line!

    There was other stuff too. The economic crisis to hit Africa first to spark mass emigration to Europe. Rolling electricity blackouts in Blighty, Western Europe and North America. An explosion in crime as desperate people struggle to feed themselves and their loved ones.

    Well this is terrible news for you, organ.

    If you're wrong, you'll look like the world's most gullible idiot. But if you're right, no one's going to be logging on here to read your 'told you so'!

    The doomed existence of the soothsayer, eh?

    I'm merely passing on info that could be helpful. Should you or anyone else care to discount it then of course that is your and their prerogative.

    For a week up until yesterday, as an experiment, I denied myself internet access. I wanted to discern how addicted I was and what difficulties not being online presented. I wouldn't fancy trying to live without electricity for a week. Minus that for a month or less would see society's like this one come apart.

    That must have interfered with your Asda orders. Hope you did a big shop beforehand.

    As it happens, it did interfere with my shopping. It was one of several problems which occurred. When I switched this laptop on last night, my mood immediately improved.

    Anyhow, black Friday or not, I'll soon be off on a pub crawl. I shall return tomorrow with more happy-clappy messages for your perusal.

    Well the news about no nukes being fired is preferable to the “nukes this Friday” post of a few weeks ago

    India, the world's second largest wheat producer, announced yesterday it will severely restrict its export to combat the rising price of it within its borders. With Russia (3) and Ukraine (8) exports diminished too then the price of bread and other wheat-based foodstuffs will increase.

    Elsewhere on the Indian subcontinent, there's ructions in Sri Lanka. Their official inflation rate stands at 22%.

    (The highest inflation rate recorded in the UK was 26% during WW1 and 25% in 1975.)
