Reuters: Breaking News: Paul Tucker To Leave Bank Of England

Recommended Posts

I wonder what/who pushed him?

What does this tell us about Carney's BOE?

AFAIR (As far as I remember) It was Tucker who was pushing for negative central bank rates.

Perhaps - they are rumoured to be desperate for a CEO - but, Paul Tucker... that'd really be scraping the bottom of the barrel - LOL!

In another email exchange between Mr Diamond and Paul Tucker, the former Barclays chief executive congratulates Mr Tucker on his appointment as deputy governor of the Bank of England.

He says: "Congratulations. Well done, man. I am really, really proud of you".

The reply from Mr Tucker to Mr Diamond in December 2008 read: "Thanks so much Bob. You've been an absolute brick through this, Paul".

Am I the only one who thinks this kind of fawning chumminess between regulator and Bob bloody Diamond was totally inappropriate? Maybe Bob will get him a job, though I doubt it.

It tells us Osborne f*cked him over by giving the job to Carney.

He's giving him two fingers back (imho) and good for him.

Carney got the job instead of Tucker (main internal candidate) which can lead to lots of tension in the long term.

Tucker is going to academia in the US.

Can we have the same headline for Carney.

They've only given him five years so expectations can't be high even among the serially deluded.
