UK interest rates to rise further

Sunday Telegraph: The real economy is pushing rates up

Now that inflation is above target, and likely to remain there according to the MPC, it did the right thing and raised rates. And I do not think that is the end of it...........

There are ...... vested interests in the City and elsewhere who do all they can to understate the chances that rates will rise.

once again here they present CPI as if it is THE inflation figure. It is nothing of the sort, and HPCers should be vey concerned at the growing trendancy of 'experts' to do this. It is deliberate smoke and mirror tactics, and for me is little short of a fraud.

I believe that they think that after 1 or 2 o.25% raises that they can surpress inflation expectations, and then continue with the BOE inflationary growth fiddle.

Inflation is at least 5 times that stated by CPI, and IR rates need to reflect this (and kill BTL in the process)
