    The first revision of Q1 2015 UK GDP data was a slight disappointment, in that the reading was unchanged from the first, advance, release at +0.3% qoq, below expectations, which were for +0.4%.

    Looking at the details, although gross capital formation came in at a healthy +1.5%, consumption growth, at 0.5% qoq was the most important shortfall, given expectations for +0.7% and the fact that consumption accounts for 70% of the UK economy. Maybe this is yet another vestige of the effect that election uncertainty had upon ‘animal spirits’ in the economy.

    The Tories can rule for 20 years...if the eurosceptics shut up
    David Cameron, like Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair before him, has captured the mood of British voters, who rejected the Labour party's shift to the left under Ed Miliband. If it can successfully mollify its eurosceptic element, the Conservatives have an opportunity to become the natural party of power for the next 20 years.

    The Bank of England Quarterly Inflation Report didn't really contain any ‘fizz’ as such, with the key inflation fan chart virtually unchanged from February’s Report. It showed inflation most probably bang on the 2% target by Q2 2017, assuming interest rates rise as predicted by the current market yield curve.

    Overall, the chief takeaway was the MPC’s continued focus on productivity growth, with Carney at pains to bemoan the sluggish improvement. He was serenely confident that we could ‘look thru’ the current low inflation readings; indeed pointing out that wages, and hence inflation, could pick up rather quickly if productivity doesn’t accelerate. The MPC’s average view is that only 0.5% of slack remains in the economy, although apparently there was a wide range of views on this as ever, given the difficulties in deriving the precise measurement of slack.

    Morning Markets: GBP feeling the pressure
    The United States is responsible for the more interesting data releases today with Europe only providing second-tier news. But this being the final trading day before voters take to the polls in the UK election, plenty of attention will be focused on the last stretch of the election race as Sterling increasingly feels the heat.
