    Rip-off Britain! Why are consumers paying more in the UK?

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 20 Jun 2017, 11:18 am

    WHETHER its the cost of childcare, technology or even a cup of coffee, consumers in the UK are paying significantly more than in other countries. Jasmine Birtles of The Daily Express investigates.

    Look at SEVEN different topics in this article HERE




    OK, I know that this is an old story, but as it has not got any better over the years this subject is worth examining again.

    I have to ask: Why do we stand for these "in your face" rip-offs ?

    Yeah, the words rip-off Britain are not used for fun.

    I think that we are our own worst enemies as far as being ripped off is concerned as we show our throats to just anybody that is planning to attack us.

    Not until the people get educated at beat them at their own game will we stop being ripped off so often.

    Quite simply we cannot depend on the watchdogs to do this job for us.

    We should be sure that the watch-dogs DO protect us from rip-off prices for British consumers.

    While I say that, I also agree that we should be aware of the pitfalls and go about protecting ourselves too.

    I think that the internet is educating people in ways that they could not be before.

    This, of course, does not allow for people who are not on the internet.

    I have found many ways to combat profiteers by simply shopping around.

    Many people still refuse, or are just too lazy to do this.
