This is how to run an economy.

Anyone thinking of voting Labour, just let that sink in.........

Soon be deflation as well
Any info on the gap between rich and poor?

We'd have been in similarly perilous danger had the Tories been in power in 2008. They were also in bed with The City and had no interest in proper regulation. And we'd also be growing if Labour were in now because things hit a nadir and they were perfectly aware of the need to cut. There's barely a difference between the two (despite protestations to the contrary by both).

You realise deflation isn't really a good thing? Often creating recessions, often to lower production and lower wages.

Who knows if this carrys on the tories will get unemployment as low as Labour did in the mid 2000's before the world financial crisis.

They have a good chance too, as more and more are forced off benefits and are worse off under zero hour contracts it makes unemployment figures look great.
