    “Our economists believe the Bank may express some concern about the impact of the fall in oil prices on inflation and wages although this is likely to be counterbalanced by lessened concern over GBP strength. Overall, policymakers are likely to refrain from sending significant new signals until the February Inflation Report.

    One risk to the GBP is if the vote split changes from 8-1 to 9-0 but with rates markets already priced for no tightening until well into 2017, the impact should be limited.
