Seriously? I wanna say he was trying to be sarcastic but...

  • BOE would look closely at inflation expectations after a no-deal Brexit outcome
  • Would need to act if inflation expectations become unanchored

I'll still give him a pass here in believing that he's just playing pretend with the headline comment as it is likely directed to him by reporters or an audience at the event. Otherwise, that's just bad form by Vlieghe.
