The Brexiteers have been chanting about how the economy has grown since the Referendum. Now the wheels are starting to fall off Boris’s bus!
GDP grew by 0,3% in the first three months of the year – half the previous quarter’s growth and 25% below economists’ already low predictions. Plus inflation now stands at a three year high of 2.3% and wage growth, at 2.2%, is lagging behind. If you are a nurse in the NHS with a 1% pay rise things are only getting worse and worse.
Energy prices are going up, food prices are going up – in fact prices of nearly everything are going up due to the fall in the £. Now we know why Theresa called the election – before loads of Tory MPs got chucked out over election expenses and the bad economic news could come out!
Vote for Change – Vote Liberal Democrats!
