Away from the SNP, very convenient growth forecasts from the BoE this morning. A few days after the election and UK GDP growth is being revised down to around 2.5% for 2015 and 2016.

Would have made more of a talking point if these were released this time last week.

There are still people who believe the B of E is independent.



In other news the publication of the 'independent' review into Savile's activities at the BBC was also postponed until after the election.

Interesting to see how the markets reacted to Tory win. Crapita' shares went up nearly 10% and there were big rises for all the outsourcing companies.

Chuka Umunna, am I the only one thinking that he must have something to hide?

No, but he claims there are no stories in the offing. Best to wait until we see the Sundays ...

Apparently no one is claiming to have a story to publish on Sunday.
