    No it’s not - they can buy other bonds that BoE would buy back using QE

    The intervention the day before Mr Sunak stands up to deliver his Budget will raise eyebrows, given the fierce debate about tax rises in the party and the pair’s close relationship.

    Mr Sunak took over Lord Hague’s seat of Richmond, Yorks, when the latter stepped down as a Tory MP in 2015. Both men will appear at the Budget event together on Friday.”

    Noice, but where the fook is the B..... dividend, why no talk of 350 mln saves per week????
