    No doubt the extra £50bn will go straight into the pockets of the 1% and do nothing to stimulate demand.

    Its a bit like trying to put out a fire by pouring petrol on it.

    Not true actually - BoE will buy Govt bonds that they can't sell for 2% on auction and don't want to pay Greek rates. So this will help Govt finance current spending that was promised - that's not stimulus, just an attempt to avoid bankrupcy.

    I got a random text from my stockbroker telling me about this announcement.

    The country hasn't descended into hyperinflation so far, why will the newest round of QE change that?

    Joanne Segars, the chief executive of the National Association of Pension Funds, said while she could understand the need to boost the economy, QE was damaging the value of pensions: "Retirees who get locked into a weak annuity will find that the Bank's money printing leaves them out of pocket for the rest of their lives.

    "For the companies that run final salary pensions, QE is a headache which pushes their pension funds further into the red. This means businesses have to put more money into their pension schemes, instead of spending it on jobs and investment. Our fear is that firms struggling with a weak economy will simply choose to close their pension schemes."
    And who's running the biggest final salary schemes?
