Whilst recent commentary from Mark Carney suggests that an interest rate rise from the MPC looks increasingly distant, the Bank of England will be forced into action next year as the resilient UK economy pushes its limits.
 
The greatest challenge to the committee’s hawks are poor Eurozone growth, a housing market coming off the boil, lower than expected inflation and the spectre of a major political shift with the general election just five months away.

Expectations of a first interest rate increase in the UK soon after polls have closed seem likely to be fulfilled.
