    Turkeys vote for Brexit!

    UK shoppers face most expensive Christmas dinner in a decade

    Shoppers who scour the high street for the best possible deals will still face the most expensive Christmas dinner in a decade.

    The UK’s cheapest traditional festive spread will cost nearly 6% more than last year after the hot summer combined with uncertainty about Brexit to drive up the price of turkey, sprouts and Christmas pudding, according to the latest annual survey by Good Housekeeping magazine.

    Even for those prepared to shop around for the cheapest options, the traditional meal will cost £3.11 per head, up from £2.94 last year and 25% higher than the £2.48 recorded in 2016, which was a 10-year low. Seven of the 10 supermarkets studied were more expensive than a year ago. The total price for a basket of 11 goods to feed a family of eight works out at £24.90.

      Due to the fall in the pound, prices are up at the wholesalers and cash & carry warehouses by +/- 10%. The price rises are not being passed on to the consumer in full. Small businesses have been hit the worst as business rates and rents have increased.

      F***ing Tories are just for hedge-fund gamblers and off-shore investors. They do not care about small business and they s**t on contractors.

            Do you mean Royal Beluga at £3k or Lupfish at £2.25 ?

              The man buys his SOFA at DFS of course he means Lupfish.

                  £3.11 per head? The biscuits to accompany the cheese course usually cost more than that. I thought this was a contractor forum...

                    So for a family of four there will be an increase of 68p....

                    To put that into perspective it seems petrol has dropped by 7-14 p per litre - so any shortcomings should be easily covered.
