Bank of England Governor Mark Carney denied Sunday that he had compromised the central bank's independence by warning of the short-run costs of leaving the European Union, after criticism from "Out" campaigners.Carney, in a BBC television interview on Sunday, said he had "absolutely not" overstepped the mark and that he would be failing the public if he did not flag dangers in advance.Jacob Rees-Mogg, a "Brexit"-backing Conservative member of the parliamentary committee which scrutinizes the BoE, reiterated his view that Carney was no longer suitable to lead the central bank after last week's comments.Last week Carney said it not clear if the BoE would need to cut rates, or to raise them, if Britain voted to leave the EU.
