Jeremiah Cornelius's Journal: Bank of England to Parliament: "We Shredded All the Records"

Journal by Jeremiah Cornelius

The bombshell came in the following exchange between the Chair of the Treasury Select Committee, Andrew Tyrie, and a very frightened appearing Paul Fisher, the Executive Director of Markets at the BOE, who has served in that position since 2009.
