"How The Fu*k Can You Exclude Housing From The Cost Of Living?"
Island is winning war on inflation
Housing costs have increased by 1.2%, the lowest rise since 2009
JERSEY appears to be winning the battle against inflation with the cost of living excluding housing at the lowest level since records began.
For the 12 months to the end of September, the index known as the RPI(X) rose by 1.4%, the lowest level seen since that monitoring of that statistic began in 1997.
And the main RPI, including housing costs, increased by 1.2% in the same period, the lowest rise in prices since the recession started biting in 2009.
The numbers have been described as ‘encouraging’ and ‘good news’ by Economic Development Minister Alan Maclean.
"Jersey Is Full Of Shyte"
It might interest readers (outside of Jersey) to know that the cheapest one bedroom flat will cost you at least £200 per week. Then you can bang your water, electricity and rates on top of that, swiftly followed by weekly parking charges.
Then you can start looking at tax and social security payments which should even out about 30% in the pound, and all this is before you have even bought a bag of bread!!!
Average shopping costs per adult are about £100 per week, so unless you earn at least £500 per week, you are not even going to cover your costs living in Jersey
