Food prices are rising more quickly in Britain than in similar economies across the globe.

A study published yesterday puts the food inflation rate at 9.5 per cent in June.

That is almost 65 per cent higher than in France, where the figure is 5.77 per cent, and a third higher than Germany's 7.12 per cent.

The cost of energy - petrol, gas and electricity - is also racing ahead, imposing a crippling burden on families and pensioners.

Why are British people getting such a rotten deal? It looks like profiteering, since there is such inexplicable disparity between nations. Corruption affects us all.

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
"

From William Shakespeare's "Macbeth"
