The Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee has once again resisted pressure to increase interest rates and so the record low of 0.5%.

With all sectors experiencing a slowdown in growth, the MPC decided that it would be counter productive to follow any path that might compound the problem.

Despite the decision not to implement a raise, the interest rate is still almost twice as high as the percentage turn out for the Alternative Vote Referendum, which came in at a pathetic 0.3% of the electorate.

Polling stations across the country reported a major display of apathy towards the Referendum, with most of the electorate either denying knowledge of the Referendum or saying they didn't want to vote online "if that's what it was about".

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
