In amongst all the excitement of the last few days, we nearly forgot the latest inflation figures are out tomorrow! ;)

CPI is currently 1.9%.

So what does everyone think the figure will be this month: up or down?

I know it won't be in these figures but I went to buy some milk before, gone from £1.21 for 2 litres to £1.40 overnight. Bread gone up 10-15p. Time to whip the milk and bread out of the basket then.. :rolleyes:

regardless where they are i cannot see merv lowering the rates even for his political masters. We have a lot of inflation feeding, and to be fair to the BOE, they have been saying that the risks are on the upside for a long time now. This has got worse over the last few months with food and energy inflation. This will take a while to feed in, but inflation aint going anywhere towards the lower scale for quite a while.

Yes, if it's down, it will be engineered down by the ONS.

I seem to remember they are trying to change that with proposals for a new stat's board but as I understand the ONS is not independent!

BOE has it's own stat's department these days.

yesterday, I had to explain to my girlfriend - as she scrutinised our supermarket receipt looking for an explanation as to why our weekly bill seems to be 10-20% higher than 12 months ago - that there was no use going through that looking for answers, she was best jumping on a train to Liverpool Street and hammering on the door of the BoE demanding to know what they thought they were playing at.

Down, remember there is no crisis and our made up accurate figures reflect these lies.

Go back to watch X-factor people you government knows what it is doing. You are the sheep and we are the sheperd. Go back to watching TV, stop thinking; there is no crisis.Leave your money in the bank.
