And of course none of this effects inflation.

What's the bets this won't appear in 'the basket'?

Here in Edinburgh where the motorist is clearly an enemy of the State, one must add to the 7.2% increase on fuel to the rapidly escalating price of a parking permit; and don't forget the requisite six or eight 30 pound parking tickets per year. I think the authorities should save on these stooges in yellow weskits who follow motorists everywhere like underfed bloodhounds and simply send each of us half dozen parking tickets annually on principle. It would save enormously in administrative fees and nonsense.

On top of this, there is the expectation that all metropolitan areas will soon have fees levied to DRIVE in the district ala London. Our insurance meanwhile has skyrocketed. Remember the story last week on Norwich Union who needed a 16% increase for old times' sake? Road tax hasn't done too shabbily either. And I bet NONE of this is in the so-called basket. In fact, since there's nothing in the basket at all that I can tell. In the interest of true economy why not just sell this useless basket; maybe Gordon can make some extra scratch for the kitty.
