Jobs figures add to strain on Brown
By Gary Duncan, Economics Editor

"PRESSURE on Gordon Brown over the state of the economy intensified yesterday as unemployment rose for an eighth month in a row and the OECD said growth would drop to just 1.7 per cent this year.
As Mr Brown prepares to face MPs’ questions this morning, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development added to his worries with a warning that taxes may have to rise, and stinging criticisms of Britain’s living standards, productivity and public sector efficiency."

Hence the election a year early.
