If we keep going the way we are, disaster looms for millions of over-60’s in the United Kingdom.
The same way that a comment about having licked the boom-bust cycle was not only totally wrong but rather crass and irresponsible. The same is true about having beaten inflation.
Yes, we may be in a period of very low inflation — even deflation — but to think that inflation is not going to return at some point in the future I think is as flawed as believing we have beaten the boom-bust cycle. Coupled with a government policy of printing money, inflation is as inevitable as the Tories getting back into power. And if inflation comes back on the Tories’ new watch they can always blame Labour.
