Algorithmic advice for the new Bank of England governor?

This is an absolutely classic example of algorithmic felicity.  Feast your eyes on this page which the BBC was serving me up about ten minutes ago.  I wonder if the new Bank of England governor will take any notice of the mathematically-generated advice thus proffered.

Oh, and just a final thought before we wrap up this post this afternoon: that “unknown fifth candidate” the BBC so half-heartedly mentions?  I do believe this so happens to be a woman.

At the risk of saying something libellous, I will limit myself to a diplomatic “no comment”.


Speedy update to this post: in the event, even the unknown fifth candidate wasn’t a woman …
