#AskBoE: Ask The Bank Of England Anything

Tyler Durden's picture

In the footsteps of the smashing success that was the #AskJPM and #MyNYPD social outreach by the two beloved institutions, yet another renowned entity has decided to take its comedic genius to the people: none other than the place where it all started - the Bank of England. So if you have a question for Mark Carney's money printing and housing bubble-forming institution, do no hesitate to tweet it: just remember to add the #AskBoE hash tag.

Here's one of their spokesmen (person!) from the UK in action :-)

If they couldn't predict this stunt blowing up in their face, how can they be expected to predict the economy?


At least they aren't as shameless as in Australia, where a central bank board member doubles as director for a hedge fund fraud scheme. Check out my updated blog on Australian financial crime:

How much gold do you currently hold in physical form, as opposed to what you tell the chumps who were dumb enough to let you hold theirs?

I don't use Facefuck or Twatter so maybe someone who does can ask this for me.

A question for Mark Carney:

What specifically is 'escape velocity' and how will you achieve it by creating more medium of exchange?

BigJim's picture

I'm not on twitter, so could someone plese tweet for me:

BofE - but we weren't on the gold standard in the 1930's, were we? We were on the Gold EXCHANGE Standard. You don't even know that???

You got it all wrong. The responses determine the amount of security they budget for next year !!!

Last I heard.....Pakistan via Diego Garcia.


I hope that doesn't qualify me for Directive 3025.18....it's not a really well kept secret. It's not like I outed the CIA chief for Afghanistan.

Bunders's picture

Maybe he was already compromised and outing him seemed like an easy way to get rid of him.

TheMerryPrankster's picture

I heard he was late on his "contribution" to CREEP.

( Commitee to RE-Elect the President)

Then there was that puzzling 17 minutes of silence on the latest Obama Secret Tapes. ...

Somebody get Kissinger in here Stat....

I thought it was the Fed that decided that? Via their proxies of course.

Sirius Wonderblast's picture

No, Barclays (Fed apparently being well endowed with tungsten, or so I read).

Does the Queen enjoy her fresh baby brains scrambled or poached?

Winston Churchill's picture

Come on, those are for her corgi's.

She only eats the hearts , stuffed with caviar.

giggler321's picture

Russian caviar at that - yes the band stuff

Winston Churchill's picture


Iranian caviar is the best ,and even more banned.

UselessEater's picture

You big ass.

We Corgi's do not eat scrambled brains....

HRH gives us French cake - you get .........crumbs and crumbs of crumby debt....


Dr Benway's picture

I thought the new wonder treatment involves injections of young blood?

ParkAveFlasher's picture

Save that one for #askhenrykissinger.

Drugs and Hookers For GDP!!!

TheMerryPrankster's picture

Q. How many hookers and blow will it take to raise the GDP by 1 percentage point?

Q (part two) Can we institute a government program to incentivize spending on hookers and blow through tax deductions and direct payments to low income citizen who can't spend their fair share?

Dear BoE, you got that money you owe me?

BeetleBailey's picture

Does Mervyn King cross dress, or what? #askBoE

Peter Pan's picture

Are they willing to release a full ledger showing what gold they own and what gold they are holding on behalf of each other nation as well as conducting a full and independent audit?

shovelhead's picture

The Queen has ordered you off to Tyburn.

Peter Pan's picture

I am currently living in one of her penal colonies which is by far a better place than the one she is living in.

UselessEater's picture

You sure?

She kinda still owns lots of lands in penal colonies... loads of land and just "maintains' a residence for the masses dog and pony show. Whatever!! My penal colony got a grand fabulous media frenzied royal inspection...erm, I mean, visit.... recently, did yours?

Where's Inthemix99?

I think they could relate to his dynamic homespun style.

F.A. Hayek's picture

He can spin the word cunt into such a deep and complex tapestry of rage that I am never less than completely impressed and awestruck at his posts. +1000 for inthemix.

# if the masses awaken to your theft, would you prefer to have your head on a pike or placed in a basket#

Peter Pan's picture

Better still they can kick it all the way like they did with Cromwell's head.

Peter Pan's picture

Actually the king ordered that Cromewell's body be disinterred and his body was hung after which his head was placed on a spike. 

They have in my mind set the precedent for awaits them as well.

Sirius Wonderblast's picture

On what planet is throwing cash at mortgages, causing another housing bubble and more concreting over of Englands (formerly) green and pleasant land, a good idea?

Not soon enough.
