Negative Growth

Got to have a laugh as Osborne’s desperate spinning. All down to the snow? Well not according to the ONS who predicted there would have been 0% “growth” (thanks Gordon Brown who also contributed to the post title) even without this. Still, using the snow as an excuse is following in Brown’s illustrious footprints (HT to Guido). As I said at the time and as Balls has been spinning today, you can’t really claim credit for anything economically during your first 6 months in office – the economics of a country just don’t move that quickly. Real test comes next quarter though.
