    Sunak's mind boggling fast and free spending and the lockdown policy put us where we are now. It's ironic that people expect Sunak to be the one who digs us back out the hole he put us in.

    This is insane. Its Gov policy that’s got us into this mess- how will inflation go down when there is a Fuel Shortage (man made by policy) sanctions on Russia that affect the west more than them. They are trying to drive down demand while going green in winter – the West is finished. Windfall tax will just mean no investment in fossil fuels. Idiots will still glue themselves to paintings and the road. All the time we are walking towards a cliff blindfold and laughing.

    This is crazy and will add to inflation through wages and price hikes. The inflation is not demand driven , it's a deliberate artificial problem on the supply chain side.

    High fuel & energy costs and printing money = Inflation

    Raising interest rates = further cost of living increases, mortgage defaults, business's that struggled through covid with Bounce back loans go bust

    big business's and the rich are rubbing their hands, thinking of the fire sales of property they are going to buy

    This is all contrived, in the same way the global 'famine' is contrived. Why would governments in 1st world countries warn of food shortages and then take farmland out of food production? many of us KNEW that when they were pissing tax revenue down the drain and giving all their cronies huge government contracts, that high interest rates would be imposed to squeeze the poor into oblivion.

    Inflation was not caused by too much money, but the deliberate suicide of government policies, due to Covid. So no need for interest rates to go up, as the fuel prices are already removing money from people, so this is more about removing home ownership

    The cost of Covid Lockdowns.

    Don’t forget USA printed 600 years’ worth of dollars in ONE year😅
    We’re screwed.

    Interest rates aren't being 'hiked', they are returning to the levels that existed for hundreds of years. Jane Austen references interest rates of 3% – 4%. Good luck to anyone who managed to benefit from artificially low interest rates over the last twenty years, but don't ask for sympathy from savers who have funded your lifestyle during that period, now that the cost of money has returned to normal.

    IT is because of economists we are in this trouble.

    As the US has raised rates (again) we pretty much have to do the same.
