There is something about the White House, once a Prime Minister has been inside they are never the same again. I don't know if it is the intoxicating effects of seeing that level of power, or perhaps even feeling somehow part of it, but they do change. Perhaps it is something more sinister. Whatever, Prime Ministers should not be allowed to visit the White House unaccompanied.
As for the Banks, I just don't know what to say. Except, they always wait to deliver bad news, they wait until they can sneek it through with minimal critisim. The first lot of "extra" rises happened after the election, then which bank waited until late on a Friday to further increase rates.
