Misery Index: Public Sector Dip Eases Pain

As the unions square up for a fight Guido’s Misery Index, the reality-based antidote to Dave’s blue-sky happiness index, is showing that people should be a little happier than they were in the last month. From the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics the decrease this month in the Public Sector Net Cash Requirement has eased the pain, slightly. The likelihood now that the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee is firmly in the hands of inflation-doves is that inflation will rip. One MPC member, Adam Posen, actually voted in favour of increasing the size of the Bank of England’s asset purchase programme (QE) to add fuel to the inflation fire.

Inflation has now been above target for two years, the Bank of England itself is predicting that it will continue to miss the target until early 2013. This could end badly…

Quote of the Day

A senior Brexiter:

“If Theresa and Julian have sold us out here they are in real trouble. She reassured us all at the 1922. There is no way she can recover if she has now fucked us over.”
