The frequency of 0.1% is actually quite embarrassing.

Yes, there's that 0.1% again, and yet strangely the Halifax's annual rate is now at 9.1% as against last month's 8%, despite May's monthly figure being far lower than April's-presumably a statistical quirk thrown up by May 2005's figure falling out of the picture...and it's that annual figure a lot of people will still look at despite prices actually falling in real terms now when set against even the official level of inlation, let alone the real rate.
