BoE down tools. Brothers - All out.

Recommended Posts

Comical - if they used the tools available to them to control inflation as per their brief instead of 'looking through it' or what ever other nonsense, then they wouldn't need to strike for a pay rise.

See - they're just like the average working man.  For sure the BoE will have stocked up on stuff like during the miners' strike.   They'll be stacked high with crooked and fraudulent financial policies and be bussing in from outside through the pickets.

To be fair it sounds like these are non banking staff who are likely treated just as badly by the BoE as the rest of the country.

The BoE only have themselves to blame.

If you have a union boss as one of your directors and put him on the remuneration committee....

Hmm. If the BoE go on strike, will anyone actually notice?

Careful what you wish for guys :P

Their bank supervision staff were on strike 2000-2007 and everyone noticed eventually

Where does Napolean Carney stand in all this.  He might well claim that maintenance and security are his specialisms along with vigilance of course.

Is Cameron going to come out with something like Cameron did about Scargill.

 "I think if anyone needs to make an apology for their role in the the strike it should be Mark Carney for the appalling way that he led the bank."

After all it's on his watch and the last strike was apparently 50 years ago.  I think this might well be a confidence trick - those banking workers get an above inflation pay rise setting the ball rolling for more pay claims elsewhere and ultimately interest rate rises - I wouldn't put anything past them.  After all they've shown already that crookedness is not beyond them.

I wonder what the average salary at the BoE is. I remember seeing job ads for £45,000 + 15% non-contributory pension in 2011. I'll presume they'll join up with British Airways strikers ?
