20% Increase on bread, Inflation starting to go out of control

Guardian: Heatwave will put 4p on a loaf, warn Britain's biggest millers

Inflation's increasing every day now on our day to day goods. Now we see an increase in bread prices, a worldwide shortage of vegetable and palm oils due to usage with biofuels - causing margarine price increases and almost anything that uses oil in the manufacture of foods ie. chips, pizza's.
I hate to think what inflation will be when these are counted into the inflation figures. Its not looking good for the rest of the year.

The world's available food stocks are down to a pretty tight margin, about 57 days worth last time I saw any comment on the issue, which is a new low-so plenty of scope for further increases.

hardly likely to matter. Lets just remove bread, and food in generally from the inflation calculations and therefore it stops being an issue. problem solved for ever.

Wow, I shold be chancellor

Perhaps the CPI should be changed so that it does not include any item whose price is likely to be affected by the cost of energy. So what does that leave now .... ?
