Yes, well, even The Express gets the article date correct more often than not. It is dated 23 March and your OP 5 days later.
That aside, the heading of the article is clear:
Tesco end multi buy deals on 600 items in desperate bid to prevent shoppers stockpiling and the article includes
“We have not increased our prices. ... “It means some products have gone back to their pre-promotion prices.
I don’t really see how you can draw any conclusions from this, which was commenced during LooPaperGate etc from memory.
The cost of paracetamol is really not going to make much of a difference to inflation, is it?
If you read the whole article, you'll see that the first part details tsco ending the multi buy thing. The next bit (what i italicised) shows the resulting new prices of stuff.
The thing is, if the consumer en mass pays inflated prices for stuff, then the consumer is witnessing inflation.
What about *you* ? Is your basket of goods costing you more or less?
