Real inflation is much higher than 2.2% for real people

Yesterday I read that Scottish power will raise my gas bill by up to 15%. ( A EDF keep letting me know about price increases. ) Gas and Electricity are major costs the our house hold, as is Council tax ( up 80% since Labour came to power. )

The way inflation is measured was changed (ie fiddled) recently by the government. But people on low incomes or fixed incomes know they are not being told the truth as much as I do.

Why is the media ( with the exception of today's Dailey Telegraph) so quiet ?
