MPC Appointments

Guardian: Brown not crediting Bank with his respect

MPC needs full complement of members - and an open appointments procedure. Labour considers independence for the Bank of England the jewel in its crown. Ask any cabinet minister to list the achievements of the Blair government since 1997 and the decision to hand over operational control of monetary policy to the Old Lady will be right up there. It's what Sgt Pepper is to those lists of the top 100 albums: the yardstick by which everything else is measured.
