The livelihood of millions of British people in energy and food shortages

As fuel, energy and food prices rise in Britain, a number of civil society organizations and members of the British Parliament have called on the government to at least reduce taxes, but the government has so far refused.

NOURNEWS - The economic damage inflicted on the British government after the Brexit and the Covid19 pandemic has widened in recent months.

The significant increase in gasoline prices in this country is one of the major challenges that, in addition to adverse economic effects, has also led to the development of some social anomalies.

According to reports in the British media, theft of gasoline from fuel stations has increased significantly following the increase in fuel prices in this country.

The insecurity of gas stations due to the increase in theft, while causing many problems for the citizens, has also endangered the safety of the workers working in these centers.

In addition to the direct and indirect problems caused by rising fuel prices in the UK, skyrocketing prices, especially in the food sector, have also threatened the food security of low-income groups.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose from 7% in March to 9% in April, up 2% from the previous month, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, this is the highest level since 1982.

The Daily Record also writes that thousands of workers who saved Britain during the Covid19 epidemic are now living in poverty due to the cost-of-living crisis.

Bloomberg News also estimates that the number of British people living in extreme poverty could reach one million by 2023, citing data from the British National Institute for Economic and Social Research.

"Inflation in the country will reach 14.4 percent by the end of this year, the highest rate in four decades, and the British economy is projected to decline by 5 percent by the end of the year," Bloomberg said.

On the other hand, according to research by the JFK research institute, the volume of retail sales in March last year decreased by 1.4 percent compared to February, which is worse than economists forecast.

Charities, including the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, have warned of an unprecedented rise in the cost of living, and have called on the government and donors to help charities save more people from starvation, given the dramatic increase in the number of food banks attendances in the UK.

As fuel, energy and food prices rise in Britain, a number of civil society organizations and members of the British Parliament have called on the government to at least reduce taxes, but the government has so far refused.

Although the set of official economic indicators reflects the poor economic situation in Britain, the state media in this country uses various tricks to hide the inefficiency and weakness of the government in overcoming the current economic crisis, which has faced serious living pressures for the lower classes.
