Christmas Shoppers Flock To High Streets Across Britain

Austerity Britain.
We should wonder how much of this "Christmas Shoppers Flock To High Streets" is being funded by Barclaycard and/or the usury companies of the "Payday loan" industry.
We might also consider that this Christmas, more than 1 million people will be taking payday loans to put food on their table on December 25th and countless others will be collecting their Christmas day meals from the local Foodbank.

It will be interesting to learn sometime early next year, how many of these high street stores will be proudly announcing "record sales over the holidays" with increased profits !
If these companies can discount prices by 50% or even more and still make profit, then why are their prices so high for the rest of the year?
