  2. I don't understand why have you decided to take over from the FPS?
  3. There isn't any specific reason. I thought others may be benefited from my post.

  4. You must be very bored, stop it and leave it to the experts.
  5. Thanks for posting this laamash, you'd think they would put something like this in the publication itself. I am confused by one thing though laamash, what is the difference between the APRPI and the RPI (apart from the obvious)?
  6. Hi, I got a shortcut answer. If you want in details please let me know, I will send you with an example.

    All Prices Retail Price Index includes council tax, mortgage interest payments, buildings insurance and house depreciation.
    Retail Price Index weightings are based on Food Survey and ONS Expenditure.


  7. I thought that was CPI, ah well...

    Since you're on a roll, any idea what the difference is between irony and sarcasm?

    No it's CPI

    As Paymaster said laamlash, leave it to the experts.
