Unemployment up!

I can't believe it one day in office and unemployment is the highest since 1994! Bastards!

 

Although this shows you have a sense of humour, I am sure the additional 53,000 people who lost their jobs are not laughing (Jesus, I am sounding like a socialist, maybe the Lib Dem thing is rubbing off). As it happens though, the figure is to the end of March. So we've yet to see what additional damage has been done by the end of April.

another Brown lie, he said during the leaders debates that unemployment was falling.

 

I dont think he said it was going down but that it was not as bad as was expected.

 

He did acknowledge the recovery was fragile and that cutting should be delayed until the recovery was assurred

 

 

However, the total number of people claiming unemployment benefit fell in April by 27,100 to 1.52 million - a sharper fall than expected which you may be getting confused with.

It is, if you keep saying the same thing on different threads.

Good things need be said more than once to you dim lefties. Otherwise you will be telling us in a few months time 'See I told you unemployment would go up under the Tories/Lib pact'

Yes it will go up if there are spending cuts more than if there were no spending cuts

In the public sector perhaps, but if the cuts mean that there is more confidence in our economy more people will spend, more companies will expand and so some of the slack may be taken up.The state cannot employ everyone.

They can only expand if they can get loans but Unemployment could affect the Private Sector if IT Projects or Capital Construction are cancelled

There's truth in what he says.

 

Hospitals and Building Schools for the Future were the saviour of some construction companies in the past couple of years.

 

And the building of more prisons and the extra office space needed by the burgeoning army of bureaucrats. ;)
