UK inflation driven up by `brutal` energy bills, as pound slides - business live

Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial news, including the latest on the US-China trade war and new UK inflation figures Inflation jumps to 2.1% Energy costs surged after price cap lifted Pound hit by Brexit crisis US considers blacklisting Hikvision 10.25am BST This jump in inflation to 2.1% means that real wage growth in the UK has slowed. Average earnings rose by 3.3% in the 12 months to March, which means real wages are only up by 1.2% “With progress on Brexit completely paralysed, rising inflation poses a challenge for Carney. As prices creep up above 2% target, the improvements in wages seen earlier in the year are being cancelled out. Uncertainty persists around the UK’s future relationship with the EU and the US trade war with China shows little sign of abating. 10.10am BST The message from today’s inflation report is clear -- consider changing your energy provider now! Peter Earl, head of energy at comparethemarket.com , says households on standard energy tariffs have suffered “brutal” increases since Ofgem lifted the price cap three months ago. The new price cap level that came into force on 1 st of April saw those customers face an average annual price rise of £117, a hefty 10% increase, which all of the Big Six energy companies were quick to implement. Rather than preventing energy companies from repeatedly upping the cost of energy, the price cap looks to have done the opposite. Many customers have already switched to a more competitive fixed price tariff but, for the millions that remain, we strongly recommend shopping around to ensure they are on the best deal possible as this will help to minimise their household bill inflation.” Continue reading...

North London bakery damaged in anti-semitic attack

To the local bagel bakery in North London. The message on the window – scratched in by an amateur sign writer – declares “RICH JEWS”. I’ve heard this slight first hand. I believe it’s called a trope. My Sephardic ancestors worked hard and behaved themselves. “Our race can do anything but fail,” wrote one of the hynmed Montefiore family to Benjamin Disraeli. I’d add, “but try not to be too successful. Try to be invisible.” I’ve heard the anti-Semitism first hand over the last few years. Someone I thought I knew and who I thought knew me declared without batting an eye “All Jews are rich”. Another hissed “Zionists” like gas escaping as I sat down in a pub. And, yep, that bastard was sat on the same table as me with mutual friends. And, no, not all the mutual pals called him out. You live and learn. One of my children was told by a classmate that Jews were not allowed to play. That Jews were not allowed to her house. Rare events. But all in past few years. When put together they chill the blood. These are worrying times…
