Sarah-Jane Tasker: Path out of the living cost crisis looks long and arduous

When KFC is messing with its menu by substituting cabbage for lettuce, then you know the cost-of-living crisis has entered a new phase.

Even the Prime Minister weighed in on cabbage-gate, saying: “Cabbage isn’t the same as lettuce. That’s just wrong.”

What is wrong is that we are firmly in a cost-of-living crisis and while we can all joke about KFC’s new twist on lettuce, plenty of families aren’t laughing because they are already feeling the financial pinch.

This crisis is unparalleled and isn’t being driven by factors witnessed in other price surges, such as increased demand and wages.

It has been fuelled by a pandemic that upended global supply chains, the war in Ukraine that shows no sign of ending and an energy shock without a quick fix.
