There’s a lot of talk at the moment about the £20 uplift being removed/continued. For me it feels like small potatoes. I have two much bigger concerns on my mind that have the potential to destroy us financially. The minimum income floor - if that gets reinstated anytime soon we’re screwed. Brexit - I’ve already seen my food bill rise due to Covid, with shortages and having to buy more expensive brands. I’m dreading what’s going to happen to food supply and prices in January. We’re not in a position to bulk buy. And we already struggle to afford all the fresh food we should eat - 5 portions of fruit and veg a day x 4 = 140 portions of fruit and veg a week - those healthy start vouchers don’t stretch that far!
