Thursday, 31st December

Or is it still March? Time's dragging. We had some statistical claims today, which were by and large fair enough. The choice of 1992 as a start date to compare the UK economy is basically a Tory device, but when comparing with France or Germany then any start date would do after 1990 (though Germany was the fastest growing of the three in the 1990s due to a unification spurt (and of course partly has been the slowest in the 2000s because of a post-U slump)).
