Unite reaction to the latest inflation figures

The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) has risen from 4.5% to 5.2%, which equals the record high reached in September 2008 and the Retail Prices Index (RPI) rate of inflation has risen from 5.2% to 5.6% in September, which is the highest rate in 20 years.

Unite general secretary, Len McCluskey said:

"Inflation is soaring, unemployment is out of control and there are no signs of growth. The coalition government is piling misery upon misery for ordinary families. Now more that ever Britain needs a plan B from this government.

"David Cameron and George Osborne's political cowardice means they are presiding over an economic catastrophe. Their refusal to change course is a political decision, not an economic one. "
