From safe pair of hands to the government’s whipping boy, Andrew Bailey has certainly had a rollercoaster ride as governor of the Bank of England since he was appointed little more than two years ago.Bailey was handed the keys to Threadneedle Street by Mark Carney just as the first Covid-19 wave was breaking over the global economy.

Since then it has been one nasty shock after another for the man long-tipped for the Bank’s top job.The lockdown in the spring of 2020 meant Bailey – born and raised in Leicester – spent a lonely first few months in the governor’s parlour, with all but a handful of the Bank’s staff working from home.It was not long before he was accused of making missteps.Bailey ditched his predecessor’s policy of giving “forward guidance” to the financial markets, only to be accused by investors of failing to lay out a framework for decision-making in a similar way to the US Federal Reserve and European Central Bank.When inflation began to increase in late 2021, Bailey ran into further trouble.
