This really should have actually been the last rack you searched :D

"wake of "continued squabbles" with Capita over the mismanaged £700m Primary Support Care (PSC) contract"...
" 'short-sighted rush' to cut around 35 per cent of the £90m it costs annually to deliver these services"...
So to save 35%, they immediately signed up to spend 12% more for 7 years?
Some time soon people will realise that career managers (if you can't do it, teach it, if you can't teach it, manage it) are the problem that causes every other problem.
You don't need to eat at a posh restaurant - you can have beans on toast or spaghetti bolognese at home and functionally, you are fed.
However, if you go to a nice restaurant, you take the time to look the part, go there, eat the best food and make an occasion of it.
Part of the vinyl experience is the fact that you are taking more time to engage with it. You only bought the best music on vinyl, as anything else is wasting space. Like eating out, you are devoting yourself to the experience, rather than having it on in the background. You can even physically see how the music is happening.
This changes your self and attitude, so that you appreciate the music more (I doubt it's all the reasons audiophiles give).
Why would you want to "change your self and attitude" you ask? well, if you're asking that, then you don't need to listen to music anyway.
Why vinyl? The same reason you occasionally eat out, buy a BMW instead of a Kia.
Someone mentioned possibility of coffee pod style pricing - it's already there - $19 for a 5l beer kit is steep. Pay the extra £150 for this: http://www.brewuk.co.uk/grainfather.html and do proper batches. If you cannot be bothered to weigh your own ingredients (why bother doing this at all in that case), you can get recipe packs for £12 for 23l of beer - but buying ingredients separate is far cheaper.
Personally, I do mini/mash/extract brewing - which strikes a good balance of time, cost and results for me. - that usually works out around £1 per litre, has very low start up costs and still allows for recipe tinkering. I've stopped drinking beer in pubs, as very few have any well looked after ale - rather some old, flat as a fart dish water.
