There is a well-worn conspiracy theory that central bankers rule the world, and politicians are their puppets.
But I would ask why central bankers need politicians, when they can just get elected themselves?
Look at Theresa May and Philip Hammond, the two arch-Remainers the EU put in charge of Brexit.
Theresa May left Oxford in 1977 with a second-class degree in Geography and went to work where?
The Bank of England.
Philip Hammond left Cambridge with a first-class PPE degree that same year, and went to work where?
A medical equipment manufacturer.
That right – he decided to take his degree in PPE and go to work for a medical equipment manufacturer.
The sort of medical equipment the World Bank needs someone to run into war-torn South American hellholes.
Of course once he had some experience in running medical equipment to war-torn hellholes on one continent………….
Up he pops in Malawi.
Perhaps he was there advising government workers on how to field-strip medical equipment.
So there you have it – two central bankers put in charge of Brexit by the EU, with a mandate to ensure it never happens.
