    OBR's view on inflation 17th Mar 17 at 4:46 PM
    Might be of interest. The OBR has changed its November 16 predictions of both RPI and CPI. Both rates up significantly, and somewhat sooner, in their March 17 prediction.

    The Presentation Slides at the end of:

    http://budgetresponsibility.org.uk/efo/economic-fiscal-outlook-march-2017/

    illustrate.

    CPI expected to reach 2.7% and RPI to reach 4.1% later this year

    And here we are, today, with CPI and CPIH at 2.3% and RPI just over 3.2%.

    All depends on what they mean by "later", I suppose.
