If all the world’s a stage, then it’s nice to be able to recognise the other actors. “God has given you one face and you make yourselves another,” Hamlet says to Ophelia.

It is now expected by sections of the financial markets that the rate will drop by 0.25% next year, even though it has been at rock-bottom levels for the last decade.
