I have recently bought a new 50inch fishing umbrella with 48inch ribs! Even more serious is the fact that Jacobs Cream Crackers, Mars Bars, Plain Bounties, 6mm Choc/orange mini boilies are all actually smaller - I am so scared of looking elsewhere!!!

It is the classic ‘shrinkflation’ whereby the cost remains the same but the contents are smaller.
The effects are not included in the inflation index.

Oiy! Steady chaps! I was referring to my fishing tackle not my wedding tackle. Today though, the roach got smaller but the signal crayfish got bigger!
