So to the average man this is all bad news. Inflation is going up? "Oh my God!" However, if you explain it properly rather than selectively quoting just the moaners, the picture is very different. Following the credit crunch the big danger was deflation. Why? Because a little bit of inflation is a good thing! Even the ECB recognises that and have been struggling to prevent the Eurozone from going into deflation. Yes, they are trying to get a bit of inflation there in Euroland! So we're on the right track. The Bank of England's mandate on inflation is not to keep it at 0%, it's to keep it at approximately 2%. (You can't keep it at an exact number hence the "approximately") And you know what the latest reading is? 2.9% i.e. a fraction over the 2% target. In fact, it was expected to come in at 2.7% and it's amazing that, considering the low value of the pound over that quarter making imports more expensive, it came in at just 0.2% more than expectations. Now that the pound is going back up again inflation should drop in the current quarter. Why don't you tell us any of that in this anti-Brexit post of yours? If you go looking for some muppet to intepret every piece of news as bad news, then you're always bound to find someone. And it has bounced back since. But, no, don't tell us about that! Retail sales saw a small decline in Q1 and a bounce back in Q2. The BBC blames this bounce on hotter weather. Yeah, it can't be the strength of the economy, can it? I'm sure this bounce is most inconvenient for not fitting in with their (and your) narrative. And that UK retail sales is bouncing back strongly points to healthy overall numbers for 2017. Damn! What happened to that "notable material negative impact" bullsh1t? We've beaten deflation and got inflation back close to target. Retail sales have jumped. And you moaners are still finding nonsense to b1tch about? Get a grip, man!
