It is obvious: for evil to prosper…

A free and open press is essential.  It provides checks on Government, Industry and just about everything else.  It exposes excesses, cruelties and injustices for all to see.

Why do nasty governments shut down the internet and make it very difficult for reporters to work in their countries?  When everyone has a camera in their phone and there is always someone around with a phone hiding things becomes much more difficult.  Soon the reporters will not be needed other than that we hope they provide unbiased reporting.

So what does a government have to do?  Don’t bother hiding it.  How do you get away with it?  Just rely on an incompetent press.

The government has put a lot of effort into discrediting RPI.  This measure of inflation was used for many years and has been abandoned in favour of CPI.  But for the efforts of the Royal Statistical Society RPI might have been abandoned altogether.  At least it is still calculated  The constant feature of CPI is that it is lower than RPI.  It is lucky it is still there as the government has found a use for it.  The government has announced that rail fares will not be allowed to rise higher than inflation and guess which measure they are using?

I don’t blame them for doing it.  I’ll quote what our free press has said about it: ” ”

It is obvious: for evil to prosper…just make sure the press is asleep
