Today's Headline of the Day comes from The Times and reaffirms the fact that the threat of inflation is very real.
On Friday GDP figures, which will show how well the economy is doing ,are to be released. If these show that the recovery is gathering pace then it may give the BOE a green light to bring forward a decision to raise interest rates, as stated above. But if they do decide to raise them sooner rather than later they run the risk of derailing any form of economic recovery.
So watch this space......
