I have already noted government plans to autocratise the police and make them an instrument for party political gain this morning.
I suspect they have no need for such a plan in the case of the Bank of England: it seems likely that they voluntarily serve Tory party interests. It is hard to interpret this unnecessary comment in any other way, given that the timing would be perfect for a Tory pre-election boost.
I hate to be cynical, but sometimes you just have to be.
Spud does. Insists that the central bank should not be indepndent, should be under the control of the government of the day.
Then he accuses it of being so and complains.
