I like a thoughtful response, even when I disagree. Thanks.In normal times you'd be right, as would the BoEs decision.
BUT, as has been said, the lower paid have no spare cash so they don't cause inflation but suffer most.
The higher paid, also have less disposable income because they have food, fuel, energy and rising mortgage interest rates to budget for. So they too are not going to cause inflation but also will suffer.
Any inflation due to demand will be due to the well off spending on non essentials and the answer to quelling this is to change the VAT rate to 25% on non essential items.
EV owners are already guilty of causing the stupid prices of EVs, used EVs and used ICEs due to demand exceeding supply. Hence my suggestion to have EV owners pay VED.
You do have a point in that taxes (of any sort) reduce inflationary pressure by reduction in spendable income. And the impact of some taxes might be more focused on those with more resources, and be fairer. Yet raising interest rates needs to be done as well. Over 13% inflation rate can not long exist with 1.75% interest rate. One of the two will increase. Better interest rates now than more inflation and ever higher interest rates in the future.
