Hornet’s nest

editorial image

The Bank of England governor, Mark Carney, appears to have stirred up a hornet’s nest following his speech in front of the House of Commons Treasury Committee, regarding the UK exit from the EU.

It should be noted that a large number of noteworthy critics, all of whom have an equal knowledge and understanding of the situation, question his reasoning.

Personally, I would prefer to accept Mervyn King’s decision.

He’s the ex-governor of the Bank of England with 10 years’ experience under his belt.

His definition and explanation of the situation are perfectly clear. Vote out.

On the other hand, Mr Carney may well regret his advances into the political arena.

He could be heading back to Canada before his allotted term of office expires.

I allude to the controversial case of John Longsworth, who quit as head of British Chambers of Commerce after his suspension for making pro-Brexit remarks.
