Comments: Shadow MPC votes 7-2 to hold rates

What a difference a few months make! The tide appears to be turning.

I suspect cool hand Mervyn will probably avoid casting a rate hike vote at present. A rate increase later in the year is looking increasingly likely.

The sun has finally appeared and will hopefully get those shop tills ringing (or beeping as they do nowadays).

The markets expect a rise, the ECB is expected to raise, inflation is the "scourge of the economy", the housing market is heating up, but will the MPC be fiddling while Rome burns?

Ah another "decision" from the MPC to keep eveything as it is. Lets hope the inflation juggernaut in the road ahead doesn't wake the driver from their sweet slumber ...
