Yep those inflation figures on Tuesday were a bit of a disaster for Merv,I think he was counting on CPI having hit 2% by now with so many one off deflationary factors to hide behind.No doubt the fact that core inflation has again risen to 1.9%* and the increase for May MOM was still a hefty 0.3% alerted the market s to what a right f**k up the chumps are making of shadowing the target.
