Don't Believe Labour:

Recommended Posts

"The new-fangled Consumer Price Index (CPI), a dubious official measure of inflation introduced in 2003..."

"It is overweight with all sorts of imports that have indeed been falling in price: clothes, shoes, software, electronics goods, and computers. "

"...the CPI leaves out or under-records two huge costs: housing and the Government"

"Britain is now so indebted that even the tiniest rise in interest rates to combat inflation will wake us up with a fright."

Nuff said....

Hmmm. The article starts well, but then takes a turn for the worse and turns into a rant:

Perhaps the CPI should stand for the Chav Price Index.

It's a laugh when you hear that sort of thing on here, but coming from a "quality" national newspaper it seems strangely repulsive.

He then goes on to say:

One reason petrol is so expensive is that 80 per cent of the price is made up of duties levied by the Government.

Yes indeed, but it's not really a reason it's been rising in price though is it?

that's because I suspect that the journalist did his research for the article by immersing himself on here for a couple of days :)
