Are you more financially secure than a year ago?

Your Comments

I am feeling rather broke.
Increased tax as I am now over 65 so that is £110 gone
Lower pension increases because of the switch from RPI to the lower CPI
Heating turned off at present to save energy
Winter fuel payment reduced as energy prices rise so need to economise on heat
Council tax no longer included in inflation calculations by HMG
Food bill kept the same so eating less (doctor is pleased as I am losing weight) but it is becoming a case of when not if I have to spend more.
