Inflation in surprise drop

first_img Share Inflation in surprise drop Consumer price inflation fell unexpectedly in March, after a month-on-month decline in the cost of food and drink outweighed higher housing and utility costs, the Office for National Statistics said on Tuesday.The first fall in the CPI rate since July last year will provide much-wanted reassurance for the Bank of England that inflation is not spiralling out of control, though inflation is still twice the BoE’s target.Consumer price inflation has been above the Bank of England’s two per cent target since December 2009, and the central bank has warned that it may rise to five per cent this year.The Office for National Statistics said consumer prices rose by four per cent last month, its lowest annual rate of increase since January.Analysts had expected the annual rate to hold steady at 4.4 per cent, a 28-month high reached in February.The retail price inflation gauge, which includes more housing costs and is the benchmark for many wage deals, slowed 5.3 versus a forecast rise of 5.5 per cent.The Bank of England, which says most of the factors pushing up prices are only temporary, faces a tricky balancing act of taming inflation over the medium term without damaging a fragile recovery at a time of public spending cuts, tax rises and economic uncertainty.Last week, the BoE opted to hold rates at a record low of 0.5 per cent, breaking step with the European Central Bank which raised the cost of borrowing for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis.Britain’s goods trade deficit with the rest of the world unexpectedly narrowed in February to its smallest since February 2010 at £6.776bn, separate statistics showed on Tuesday. Economists had forecast a deficit of £8.1bn. whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Autumn Tests: Corbisiero might be fit, but these guys won’t be

first_img Drained but not down: Alex Corbisiero could still play in autumn, but other international stars aren’t so luckyWITH THE story surfacing that Alex Corbisiero may be out for at least three to four weeks with a knee complaint, via the Times, it was presumed that yet another hurdle had been put in front of England and their Elite Player Squad.However, he is named in the EPS squad for the Tests and will be monitored after having fluid drained from his knee. He may feature later in the month, he may not but here are four players (Lions, no less) you will be definitely be gutted not to see in the November Tests.Stuart HoggThe bottled lightning bolt that is Hogg has already been missed by Glasgow Warriors, but it is with Scotland who will be hoping to score counter-attacking tries against the likes of South Africa and Australia that will miss him most keenly. They will have Sean Lamont thumping up from the back-three alongside Tim Visser and Sean Maitland is there but he may have to play full-back with Hogg, Peter Murchie and Greig Tonks out. There just doesn’t seem the same unpredictability there.Pained: Jamie Roberts can play hurt, but Wales have optionsJamie RobertsAnother ‘maybe’ player, Jamie Roberts has seemed an irreplaceable force in the centre for Wales. Perhaps he will stage another superhuman comeback for the sake of the November Tests, but there have been enough promising performances in Wales over the last few weeks – most encouragingly from Scott Williams at the heart of the Llanelli Scarlets team – and there are a few options there. But Roberts is undeniably influential when fully fit.Manu Tuilagi EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – OCTOBER 12: Cornell du Preez of Edinburgh tackles Simon Zebo of Munster during the The Heineken Cup Pool 6 Match between Edinburgh and Munster at Murrayfield Stadium, on October 12, 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by Ian MacNicol/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Check out our exclusive feature with Simon Zebo in the November edition of Rugby World – out now! Another missing centre, Tuilagi will be joining Brad Barritt on the touchline as they cheer on new England boys Henry Trinder and Joel Tomkins. While some may see his injury as an opportunity to experiment over the coming months, the qualified thinking is that as soon as he is fit again he will come straight back in to renew his internal rivalry with Billy Twelvetrees.Of course, it is also vital to realize that Tuilagi has a lot more experience than those replacing him, despite his lack of years. Having been through a World Cup, a Lions tour and big Tests against the likes of New Zealand. The others are going to have to learn fast.Cracked: Zebo fell against EdinburghSimon ZeboThe livewire wing is out for 10 weeks after a scan on Tuesday confirmed the Munsterman had fractured a bone in his foot during the province’s opening Heineken Cup loss to Edinburgh.There may be fewer heart palpitations for Irish fans this November with Zebo’s kept away from the Aviva turf, but it also means there will be one less maverick running toward the likes of the All Blacks. If Ireland are to get that elusive win against New Zealand one cannot help but feel players like Zebo would only have helped with their work-rate and array of skills. Plus it’s always nice to hear the fans shout “Zeeeeeeebo!”last_img read more

The brief was to transform the house to ensure spacious, bright and contemporary living.

I think that they were expecting us at the security barrier. The intelligence services had apparently intercepted some of our telephone conversations,” he added.He told the organisation that his prison conditions were very harsh. “I shared a first very cramped cell with two other prisoners. The guards frequently stopped us from sleeping at night by banging on the bars”, he said. The cousins were reunited in a collective cell after a month in custody. But while Mohammed Ahmed Hassan was released on 12 September, his cousin, Ali Nasser Kaid, remained in detention without charge.Willem Marx was expelled from the country on the same day he was arrested.

Hindu religion as professed never consisted of people who are so narrow minded,” observed a bench headed by Chief Justice Abhay S Oka.The petitions sought strict implementation of Section 7 of the Karnataka Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments Act, thereby, seeking that no person who is not professing Hindu religion be permitted to work in the office of Commissioner appointed under the said Act. One of the petitions was filed by N P Amruthesh, questioning the printing of the name of A B Ibrahim, who was working as deputy commissioner with the Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments Department, Mangaluru, on the invitation card of the annual festival organized by the Mahalingeswara Temple.The second petition filed by Bharata Punarutthana Trust objected to the appointment of Mohamad Deshav Alikhan as Superintendent in the office of the Commissioner under the Act.A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty was surprised on reading the prayer in the petition filed by Amruthesh, which sought directions to restrain the deputy commissioner from entering the temple. It orally observed: “What heavens are going to fall if respondent 4 being the Deputy Commissioner, for overlooking the arrangements will enter the temple. Hindu religion was never so narrow. Hindu religion as professed never consisted of people who are so narrow minded.”The court added: “There are instances, go all over the country, where in big Hindu festivals, the government officers who do not profess Hindu religion have actively assisted the administration”. Taking a strong objection on maintainability of the petitions as Public Interest Litigations, Chief Justice Oka said :”After the Constitution has come into force, we will never entertain such petitions in the court. There is something known as the Constitution, there is something known as Constitutional philosophy.We will not entertain a petition which will take us 100 years back.”In its order the bench referred to section 7 of the Act, which reads thus:Section 7: Commissioner, etc. to be Hindu.- The Commissioner and every Deputy Commissioner or Assistant Commissioner and every other Officer or servant, appointed to carry out the purposes of this Act by whomsoever appointed, shall be a person professing Hindu Religion, and shall cease to hold office as such when he ceases to profess that religion.The bench said: “On plain reading of section 7, there is no general prohibition on appointing an officer or servant to work in the offices of commissioner, deputy commissioner or assistant commissioner. The restriction imposed by section 7 is that Commissioner, Dy Commissioner, Asst Commissioner and every officer or servant appointed to carry out purposes of the said act of 1997, shall be a person professing Hindu religion. The test for applicability is that the officer or servant is appointed to carry out the purpose of the Act.”The court gave two illustrations to drive its point further. A computer programmer or data entry operator may be appointed to the office of commissioner to create computer programs or data entry in the office of commissioner. It cannot be said that such a data entry operator or programmer has been appointed to carry out the purpose of the act.Another example it cited was that if a group D employee is appointed to clean the offices of Commissioner, it cannot be said that such a servant is appointed to carry out the purposes of the Act.Accordingly it noted:  “Therefore to decide whether the prohibition under Section 7 is applicable, it is necessary to consider the nature of duties assigned to the officer concerned.”Before concluding the bench noted that: “Judicial notice will have to be taken of the fact that government officers, police officers, irrespective of their religious faith and beliefs effectively assist all religions in celebrating their respective religious festivals. In fact that is part of the Constitutional philosophy and concept of Secularism.” The bench thus refused to grant any relief and dismissed the petitions. Next Storylast_img read more
