I wonder whether the Bank of England decides on interest rates to allow their graph to mimic the silhouette of a specific historic castle.

Maybe in 2094, we’ll be able to see the entire western wall of Windsor Castle, amid an economy that has brought the country to a standstill.

    I much prefer the ‘mountainous’ profile of traditional line graphs, where the snow-capped peaks of economic meltdown cascade down to the valleys of social prosperity, but then I’m a country boy a heart. (At least I think that’s what people call me.)
