I’VE BEEN having some issues with my spam filter on this site recently.
I had expected a rush of people leaving comments welcoming the recent drops in the Bank of England base rate. After all, many of those who read this blog and who leave comments are Tories who like to complain about how indebted we are as a nation. We are, they constantly claim, a nation of borrowers rather than savers.
So obviously the drop in interest rates, and the consequent cuts in most people’s monthly mortgage payments, is something they would undoubtedly welcome, especially at a time of economic downturn. I mean, can you imagine their howls of anguish if interest rates had gone up to anywhere near half the levels they were under the Conservatives?
So, knowing how fair and objective my commenters are, I simply have to assume that all the comments saying how much they welcome the cut in base rate to two per cent have been accidentally spammed by WordPress. Tut, tut.
So apologies if your comment welcoming the recent cuts as a vindication of Gordon Brown’s decision to grant independence to the Bank of England in the face of Conservative opposition have not yet been published. Please resubmit.
