And shortly after this decision was taken, CPI jumped to 2.8% and the MPC all shat themselves.

The MPC really are a bunch of pathetic, weak, impressionable wussies. Dont they have any imagination? or balls? Their softly softly approach is pathetic, they are worse than the politicians. Look at CPI (fake nu labour measure of spending for aliens) : even at 2.8% it is way above target. Dont get me started on RPI; its touching 4 percent for god's sake. - Pop Quiz hot MPC hot shots: imminent car crash. Do you a) slam on the brakes? or b) let go of the wheel and pretend you aren't driving?

They are stuck in a corner with nowhere to go, interest rates up and the economy is shagged, interest rates down and the economy will burn out as more debt is piled on. They are trying to ride out the coming storm in typical Nu-Labour fashion by doing nothing and hoping it will go away.
