Cost of living Survey

As we all know, energy, fuel and food prices are rising dramatically. Along with the cut to universal credit and the financial hardship many are suffering as a result of the pandemic, people across Wales are facing a cost-of-living crisis. Unfortunately, this will only get worse as prices continue to rise.  

To better understand how the cost of living is affecting residents in South Wales Central I’d appreciate hearing your thoughts on your own situation. I will use the information to better understand how I can support you in my role as your regional member of the Senedd.

    Q: What do you think politicians should do to help?
    A: We were quick enough to sanction Russian oligarchs as they had Putin’s ear, so don’t tell me a conversation can’t be had with the Billionaires running UK energy companies to cut the working class some slack – or are Boris and chums too embedded with them for that?

    Q: What do you think politicians should do to help?
    A: There should be a serious discussion regarding the tax regime and who pays the most. It’s very frustrating seeing multinationals like Amazon, Starbucks etc make huge profits but pay little in tax. The burden needs to be more fairly distributed. The green levy needs to be discarded on household fuel bills, this adds an unnecessary burden. Vat on fuel should be scrapped, at least in the short to medium term.

    Q: Has your weekly food bill gone up?
    A: Yes. This has been rising for some time now. Try to eat as healthily as possible, but it’s certainly not getting easier.

    Q: 3. If they go up again how will this affect you?
    A: It will be very difficult. Cut backs have already been made and there would be more to come. With an autistic child, electronic devices are important to him so they wOuld have to stay, but other things would have to go. Subscriptions would be the first, but if insufficient, activities would be next etc.
