In this winter’s rising energy, food, and mortgage costs, household expenses could increase by £6,000.
This winter, households will pay an extra £6,000 in bills as a result of rising energy prices, food costs, and mortgage repayments.
The worst cost-of-living crisis since the 1950s is raising concerns that millions of additional families may be reduced to poverty by the end of the year.

It is assumed that there are 2.3 people per typical household and that spending patterns have not changed over that time.

Everyone will be affected by these horrifying price increases, which will affect every home in the nation.
Moreover, by failing to pass on interest rate increases, major banks defraud savers of £10.4 billion annually.
The true figure is probably even higher because this does not account for the Bank of England’s base rate increase this week.
