    “Bank of England expected to raise rates, gradually, after May general election”

    what they are expecting is a massive devaluation.
    the most overrated currency in the world by far.

    And of course polly is our resident economic expert.

    If I wanted an opinion on monetary policy I think an Argentine cabana boy would be the last person I would consider asking.

    But while we are here, do tell us dear paulie, on what do you base your assumption?
    What facts, figures and hard information do you have to support this?
    What do you know that some of brightest and most knowledgeable people in the world don't know?
    Do tell, sweetie, do tell.

    “Ben Broadbent, deputy governor of the Bank of England, commented that the British pound exchange rate is likely to be overrated by 30%”

    As usual paul-carrion declines to name the source, or provide a link, so it is not verifiable, and probably taken out of context. Basic schoolboy error.

    @2 he wrote
    “what they are expecting is a massive devaluation.
    the most overrated currency in the world by far”

    So let's see the proof that the BoE is expecting is a MASSIVE devaluation and also that Sterling is the MOST overrated currency in the WORLD.

    Not some random quote. Proof paulie, with links.

    This is going to be funny.
