CPI fiddling.

News from the ONS via the BBC on the changes made to the basket of goods making up the CPI.

Great news if you buy lipgloss, liquid soap, allergy tablets and electric hair stylers (50% of the population taken care of there although I’m sure lipgloss type products covers off some men too such as eyeliner Burnham for example).

One thing that did interest me from the ONS (pdf file) website is that Restaurants and Hotels make up 12.6% of the CPI index which personally seems far in excess of the typical spending of just about everyone I know. Must be a Southern thing – along with Horse Tack and Livery, private school fees and household staff.
