Lucky Generals

The coalition growth forecasts were clearly put together by Benny Hill (click here) and based on the idea that the UK consumer would throw caution to the wind and take on debt to protect lifestyle. Perhaps a reasonable, if unlucky, assumption in 2010.

Time for a new plan chaps...........perhaps a few of the austerity zealots should follow Captain Oates example and take a short walk ?

There is always space for a plan B - one of the key laws of Nature "Adapt or Die" teaches that even to the most arrogant.
