Passed caring about interest rates any more. Though i reckon he will vote for a hold straight away. I have faith in the BOE and that they will royally ****** this up big time and need to lift further and quicker.

seriously can we please have a riot soon? I'm probably the least likely person on earth to want to go protesting or something but I can't take anymore. Just name the date I'm there.
