A senior BoE employee was told of "attempts to move the market" but "did not convey to
[Monetary Policy Committee member Paul Fisher] that markets were being
rigged," and therefore was suspended. While many have called this "as
bad as Libor" the BoE remains adamant of its lack of involvement but is
still restructuring itself - adding that "it isn't our job to go out hunting for rigging of markets." Nope, just to ignore it, we presume. MPs were not impressed.
