  2. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/5337242.stm UK inflation up to 2.5% in August Cash till The Bank has warned that inflation could eventually rise above 3% UK inflation accelerated to 2.5% in August, the fourth month in a row it has topped the government's 2% target. August's 2.5% Consumer Prices Index (CPI) figure from the Office for National Statistics was a slight increase on July's 2.4% level. Meanwhile, the headline RPI rate - which includes mortgage interest payments - rose to 3.4% from 3.3%. The latest figures will renew pressure on the Bank of England to raise interest rates, analysts said. Computer games The Bank of England last increased interest rates by a quarter of a percentage point to 4.75% in August. With the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee voting 6-1 to keep rates on hold in August, some analysts now expect a further rise in November. Last month, the Bank's governor, Mervyn King, warned there was a 50-50 chance that inflation would rise above 3% in the next six months, and a good chance it would rise above 3% over the next two years. The Office for National Statistics said an increase in the price of computer games and toys in August had outweighed a decline in petrol prices and air fares. August's 2.5% CPI figure is the same as in June, and is the joint highest since Labour entered government in 1997.
  3. http://business.timesonline.co.uk/article/...2340136,00.html " Now, however, the Bank faces a problem, arguably its most serious yet. There are doubts, not just about its ability to control inflation in future, but if it is under control now. Those doubts stem from scepticism about whether the consumer prices index (CPI), the Bank’s target inflation measure, accurately reflects people’s genuine experiences. This is a serious matter, as Bank insiders are aware. If people stop believing the inflation numbers, the credibility of monetary policy suffers. That could begin the slippery slope to economic anarchy "
