- So, what is the 'real' or 'net growth' figure then and how does that compare, hmmmm?


unemployment in Great Britain is 5%


- Depending on which method of accountancy you use.

I wonder how UK unemployment would look if we were to take a leaf out of the German's book and count part-timers who want a full time job as unemployed, hmmmm?


and the British national debt is low.


- Thanks to this Labour government that much is true.

True.

- What 'socialism', where?

Every country in Europe has been either maintaining a public sector which is a definite minority of economic activity in a mixed economy, or, actively reducing the size of the public sector in the last 10 - 20yrs.

That is not 'socialism'.
