Only if the companies choose to fund wage increases with higher prices instead of lower profits.

what we have now is not typical inflation. Typical inflation occurs when people have too much money in their pockets, driving demand for goods skywards. On this occasion, people dont have enough money in their pockets for basic subsistence, they need more money to survive and to afford essential utilities and services. So the mantra that pay rises feeds inflation is complete bollocks, because the inflation is entirely related to energy prices that are immune to the effects of rising pay

I couldn't give a sh** about any Royal Mail strike. It's about a year since I stopped ordering anything online. I was tired of waiting in for the deliveries.

Also, i rarely get physical mail (letters). All my bills and bank statements are online. Last letter I got was four days ago from the HMRC, and even that, there is a copy on my online account and I got an email notification.
