The Changing Face of Bank of England GDP Forecasts

The Guardian posted today on how the Bank of England's GDP forecasts have changed as new vintages have been released through the inflation reports. I found it really difficult to see how the visualisation they chose showed the point that they were trying to make, so here's my attempt at producing something a bit clearer. I would prefer to keep to the same fan chart style and not have to use a set of point estimates, but the data provided don't lend themselves to doing this very easily or nicely.
