The Chancellor is trying to give inflation a boost with an action replay of the not-so-great decimalization scam. He wants to abolish copper coins; 1p and 2p coins. Which means that every price which doesn’t end with 5p or 0p will be rounded UP to the next 5 or zero instead of down. And we’ll have to put up with inflation of 6% instead of 3%.
Someone needs to give Hammond the sack forthwith. Or at least a Special Agent Gibbs of NCIS slap around the back of his head.
