Interest Rates And An Election?

Recommended Posts

Whats the current guess, an October election or a June election, will the markets assume a change in government will remove the reckless spending, so tax increases etc. The removal of QE, BoE base rate increases, sterling making a recovery against the Eastern and commodity correncies?

If you were a betting man, and you had say 5 million to tie up in a cash fixed rate bond, purely an example?

Would you;

1) Tie up/ Fix for 6 months

2) Tie up/ Fix for 12 months

3) Tie up/ Fix for 18 months

4) Tie up/ Fix for 24 months

How long till Sterling ragains ground on the back of a change in goverment tatics, .i.e. end of QE, and all the other shite Liebour have introduced to hide the mess we are now in?

There won't be an October election - why seek unemployment 9 months before you need to!

Any way Labour prefers elections when the days are long (i.e. May/June) as people can go to the polling station after work in the daylight. Its more difficult to turn people out on council estates/poorer areas when the weather is cold and its dark due to crime etc.

Good point, on that assumption, we are at least twelve months away from a sterling recovery, base rate rises, end of QE?

So for me, my guesstimate would be an 18 month fix?
