And forget the usual empty talk about "windfall taxes" - oil companies and electricity suppliers will continue to hand out bloated windfall bonuses to their legions of cynically opportunistic CEO's.
It must be clear to everyone,surely, that viral, universal opportunistic cynical price-gouging is being used and tolerated if not encouraged by our mis-leaders in order to ignite even more anti-Russian rage. Propaganda in painful physical form.
Hey folks/suckers - almost everything costs at least 20% more than in January because of madman Putin's wickedly illegal invasion of peace-loving Ukraine.
So remember to hate him 10% more(+VAT) with every additional gratuitous 10% price-hike yet to come.
And don't forget - as Covid-19 clearly showed - your leaders do really, truly, deeply care about your health and well-being.
