    I mean fine most the time but a few days a month it may an idea to give it a miss.

    Unless that's your thing I suppose.

    Wasn't thinking so much about the consumer as much I was about the UK economy being propped up the ever strong services sector.

    UK services sector expands at fastest rate this year

    If eating out becomes too expensive that sector will come down with a crash bang wallop. But I'm sure leave voters already priced this in.

      To sum up the strength of the UK economy is:

      restaurants, gyms and hairdressers
      I'm alright Jack

        From that, you apparently draw the conclusion that "Parliament is the people", ...
        It's a well accepted figure of speech. Everyone knows MPs are representatives not delegates.

        FFS, arguing with literal-minded nitpickers is like trying to push a pea up a hill with one's nose!
