    The drop is all about falling energy prices and a sharp reduction in food price inflation.

    Itís get bugger all to do with The Toryís, but watch them try and take the credit.

    It was the one of Rishi's 5 pledges that was almost out of his, and his party's, control anyway.

    It's a bad day for those saying that wage rises cause inflation given the recently announced wage figures.

    I have noticed a few things getting noticeably cheaper in the supermarket. I don't know about anyone else but inflation definitely forced me to live a lot healthier.

    I'd imagine the energy portion will drag now for a few months as the price of natural gas has been steadily rising from its lows of spring/early summer.

    So if we all had 2k week extra in our pockets and at the end of the month we all decided to buy an 8k car. Seeing as demand would out strip supply - what do you think the car dealer would advertise his 8k car for the following month ?

    I haven't seen anybody say it was, I am probably not on this board as much as you though.

    Is that meant to be an intelligent question?

    Anyone on here could easily claim it was down to us. Iím so glad my target to halve inflation has been such a success. You watch those Tory gits trying to take my credit.

    What a complete distortion of reality. If you read threads more instead of steaming into them screaming things like 'Toey filth' you would realise that.

    I've constantly made the point that inflation and the cost of living issue is global and cyclical. This is evidenced by every western country seeing big spikes in inflation and every western country seeing it now fall.

    The govt didn't cause the rise in inflation and it isn't behind the fall. An argument can be made that it did some things to not make the matter worse, but the fall was always going to happen - I've said that from the start.

    Why would Rishi make halving inflation one of his 5 pledges, if he couldn't control it anyway?

    For exactly the same reason that the opposition blamed them for inflation even though they were very little to do with it. Cos that's politics, unfortunately.

    It could have been different. We could have had some honesty from when inflation started rising after Covid, but party's will always play political games won't they.

    What things? I lived through inflation in the 1970's and most costs did not come down again, certainly not back to the previous norms. I suspect the same will happen this time around.

    Are you still a conservative Christian?

    It's entirely you perogative but I think the two are not able to fit together

    Christians wether I believe in God or not and we know I don't.....are generally kind , sharing people

    Conservatives ? ......well its all about the dollar

    I would be interested in your views , the local churches seem full of torys , I find it odd and disconcerting

    Sludge - I'm not sure if I dare respond to this, lest I be accused of hijacking another thread! I can easily, but what do you think? Is it a genuine enquiry or a wind up?

    The Christian element of the Tories are those that donate to, or volunteer at food banks, for those who can't afford to buy food, or those who facilitate warm hubs for those who cant afford to heat their own homes.

    So basically they vote for their government to cut benefits and make people struggle

    And then to get closer to God they deliver food parcels to the people they have directly driven into poverty by voting Conservative

    Praise the Lord !

    Yeah because a party in power for 13+ years has no control over where our energy comes from does it?

    Rampant short term-ism cripples the country once again.
