Britain Climing Out of Recession as Economic Growth Returns

The National Institute for Economic and Social Research, one of the foremost independent economic forecasters, estimated that Britain had seen economic growth in the three months to August.

Its announcement coincided with figures showing that the manufacturing sector was enjoying its strongest growth for 18 months, that consumer confidence was recovering and that the jobs market was improving for the first time in almost a year and a half. The stock market has bounced back, with shares in London hitting their highest level of the year yesterday. Estate agents reported that house sales and inquiries were up by more than 50 per cent in August on the same month last year. . . . . . .

. . . . . . . However, he gave warning that the coming months would be far from pleasant. “This is not going to be a V-shaped recovery,” he said. “This is going to be very tough. It will take until late 2012 for the economy to return to the size it was at the peak in 2008. This will be a long, painful recession.”
The left wing Guardian? The Government Broadcasting Corporation? The not so Independent.

Nope

Read the Telegraph and weep, you doom and gloom merchants.



This means that spending through the recession worked better than Camerons alternative would have done. Of course, it would have worked sooner if Brown had listened to Vince Cable.

Whet, although I empathise with your attempts to point out the errs and political carpet-bagging of the press, not to mention questioning the veracity of their statements, your comments following that extract were petulently childish and provocative.

Rephrase them and spur a debate. Not incite vitriol.

Aren't you the one always claiming the Telegraph prints Tory lies?

I assume you pick & choose which story to believe based upon your prejudices not on the content and veracity of the piece.

PS. How do you know it "worked better than Camerons alternative would have done"?

Does it? Where is the comparison with what would have happened with the economy had Cameron's plan been put into action?

In a further boost, Britain’s triple A credit rating is unlikely to be reduced, as had once been feared, even though the country’s budget deficit will soon be the worst among advanced economies.
Thanks to Brown and Bliar and their profligate public spending. Who will suffer the long-term pain to pay to get the country out of the red? Not you.

What debate? The usual subjects will throw the usual slurs and misrepresent my political leanings, some will play word games about recovery and having recovered and a few will rubbish the organisation which the Telegraph quoted.

It is telling, is it not - that of all the Telegraph readers who regularly post on here, none saw fit to post such good news?

Quite true, I won't. However, I won't enjoy the fruits of recovery either. I won't see my savings grow, the value of my house go up etc.

However, this is not about me - it is about the recovery. Which unfortunately the conservatives are going to benefit from.

Well as the Telegraph is mortgaged to the hilt by RBS, it is well and truly in the ownership of the taxpayer. It currently loses £lots per week, and is being funded by a massive overdraft, so I presume they will print anything their political masters dictate.

Lets not forget that they printed McBride's denials via a Labour friendly hack before the story broke and McBride was forced to resign......

IIRC the Telegraph was heavily pro Brown before he became PM and was extolling his virtues as an economic wiz kid until a year ago......

That doesn't mean shit in today's world, especially when certain high ranking Telegraph journos and editors are the drinking buddies of so many labour MPs and Special advisors.

Nor him as an individual. It is we who will bear the burden of the last few decades of our own profligracy and that of the gvts. But those who sponge off the state shall be protected. Not just the weak and the sick and the incompetent, but the chavs, the hangers on, the dole queue dropouts, the idlers, the terminaly politicaly correct for whom rights are all important and duties something to be ignored, trampled upon. Would that we had a past government that would have saved us from our own excesses. But we didnt. Would that we could have a future government that will set the recovery needs of society as a whole as an achievable target set against a timetable and set aside the vested interests of minority groups and those with loud lobbyist voices. But I see non such.

Hmmm must be carefull when drinking Jack Daniels.

Edited to add: In response to Dozy Bints earlier post.

So you have a problem with the Conservatives taking on an economy slowly finding its way out of recession when the Government of the previous 13 years has gambled away our foreign exchange and gold reserves and dug us into the biggest public debt pit in history? The Tories are hardly going to be able to put forward favourable economic policies during their first couple of terms of office because they'll still be putting right all of the damage that Labour have done. Pretty much like Thatcher had to do after Wilson's and Callaghan's balls-ups of the 1970s.

Are you stark raving mad? If the Conservatives manage to get us out of this Liabour derived mess we will all benefit. You simpleton.

Do you read the Telegraph Dozy. Or at work, didn't you see the front page headline as you walked past one of your colleagues who was reading it. Did you not see the headline on the news stand - the one that said, "Britain Climbing out of Recession".

If so, why didn't YOU introduce the thread?

The poor conservative party eh, I seem to remember Labour being handed a very strong economy when they came to power, shame they fcuked it up as usual.

I dont think the rest of the world shares the great leader and his muppets optimism on the UK economy.

How wrong you are Blobby. Didn't you read the reports I posted on the utterences of IMF which said that the government had gone down the right path (didn't mention that the advice came from Cable, mind) the CBI or the SBF report that said that the economy was looking up? No?

Did you see the Telegraph banner headline today - did you ignore it?

Frankly, because it doesn't interest me - it's all relative and we're still in a fucking massive mess thanks to the wankers who've been in power since 1997.
