    Default Uk inflation accelerates as imports cost more

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...than-two-years

    "Import costs surge by more than 15%, highest in 5 years".

    And most retailers are discounting for Christmas. I suspect the rate of increase will be even higher next year.

    Of course, they have never discounted for Christmas before. This is the first time ever. UberCretinism at its uberist.

    Can't you just f**k off and die?

    I didn't say this was the first time they've discounted for Christmas.
    I mentioned that because it would temporarily lower the rate of the rise in inflation and once the discounts cut out in the New Year, the rate would rise again.

    So much anger. I wonder why.

    Don't think that's quite the point that was being made here

    I think the point was that if shops had already applied the discounts when the figures were taken, then the inflation is actually worse than the headline figure suggest.

    I sympathise with your ex-wives. A bundle of fun you were obviously not.

    I thought this was going to be a sensible economics thread along the lines of 'yet again inflation falls well below target', but alas, not to be.

    Still, it ramps up the posts from the economically illiterate a bit more.
