In a shocking turn of events, James Nobody, a self-proclaimed financial guru, was stunned to learn that UK interest rates will remain high for the foreseeable future. According to sources close to Mr. Nobody, he was overheard shouting, "I can't believe it! This is madness!"

The news has sent shockwaves through the country, with many people expressing concerns about how they will cope with the increased cost of borrowing. One person, who wished to remain anonymous, commented, "I already struggle to make ends meet. If interest rates go up any further, I might have to start hiding money under my mattress."

Despite the concerns of the public, some well-known personalities have been quick to defend the decision. Michael Banker, a wealthy banker and avid yachtsman, argued, "Higher interest rates are good for the economy. It separates the wheat from the chaff, if you catch my drift."

Meanwhile, James Nobody has been left reeling by the news, and was last seen frantically scribbling equations on a whiteboard, muttering to himself about compound interest and the like.

In the words of Mr. Nobody himself, "This is a complete disaster. I thought I had it all figured out, but now I realize I'm just a small fish in a big pond." Perhaps it's time for Mr. Nobody to stick to something a little more within his area of expertise - like amateur stand-up comedy.
