Although I’m not happy that inflation is creeping up and prices are rising, I cast a wry smile at the news that February’s CPI (the Bank of England measure) hit 2.5%, which is higher than our February (for April 08-Mar 09) Council Tax increase of 2.4% !

Our benchmark is, and remains, the September RPI inflation figure which is linked to pensions uplift, but the fact that we’re also emerging to be under February CPI as well is a nice bonus.
