In recent months the BBC has a number of times reported a possible increase in food prices due to Brexit. Whenever they did the price of my bag of chips would jump by approximately 8%. I bore this with manly Stoicism, as would any manly Briton, realising that these were unusual, unstable times. This week, however, the BBC reported an imminent rise in food prices by 5% due to 'extreme weather' and the price of my bag of chips has surged upwards by 25%. Yes, that's right, 25 ******* %. I have realised that it's not the times that are driving up the cost of my lovely, fried potatoes. It's the BBC. So, BBC - are you listening? Stick to reporting things that have happened and stop ruining my lunch. REUTERS/Dylan Martinez Have you noticed any opportunistic price-hikes lately?
