I doubt Catherine Mann would kick off a meeting of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) with: “See, told you.”
But with inflation jumping back up to 10.4 per cent in February, she might feel like doing so.
It will be interesting to read the minutes of the latest meeting to see if there is any hint of that in coded language, but that’s being flippant when this is no laughing matter.
