OECD predicts recession in the UK


Recommended Posts

Since the BBC brought fair and balanced journalism to the report, I'd thought id bring it to this thread:

 

"But many other analysts are predicting economic growth in the first quarter."

 

Print is a bit small for a fair balance.

Cynical.. What do you think?

Is this the reason why the Tories are desperate to fill up our jerry cans.

 

Cynical no?

 

And to make it even more balanced:

 

The forecasts of the OECD and the OBR are so consistently wrong we might as well ask Michael Fish for his GDP growth forecasts

If there is a recession I think we can put it down the unseasonably warm weather were having

 

Im sure George will have a multitude of excuses should the panic buying of Petrol this week not be enough to cover the fall.
