Trevor,

Aren't we being a little sceptical. After all the Banks always look after our money. Don't they?

oftenwrong,

Of course they do. As if it were their own!

An interesting article in the Guardian:

I'd also recommend reading:

Snakes in Suits - Paul Babiak and Robert Hare

The Psycopath Test - Jon Ronson

Double dip!

Now an accurate description of (Governor of the Bank of England) Mervyn King's face when giving an account of the Nation's financial prospects.

I have a strong feeling that Mervyn's main job will be printing more cash for Gideon to give too the banking sector.

its my understand that Marvyn will soon be joining a print union as a full time member, as that has become his main job of late

Mervyn King is likely to be recorded in history as the first Governor of The Bank of England who watered the whisky.

When the coalition took office, the IMF had estimated the UK economy to grow by 2.6% in 2012, and backed Osborne's "plan A"

The IMF has now cut its growth forecast for 2013 by the same margin of 0.6% and now expects UK to grow by 1.4% next year. Britain’s downgrade was the largest of any major economies except for India in the IMF's World Economic Outlook update.

The IMF are just as bad at forecasting growth in the UK economy as Osborne is in creating it. Austerity measures are the top priority for the Tories, it enforces their ideology, whereas growth is of a secondary hopful outcome.

So the £billions about to be spent on upgrading the railways is a waste of time then? Is that classed as spending on infrastructure?

The Government spokesperson who announced that railway spending rather gave the game away by adding that the cost would not appear on the Government's books.

It's all going to be charged to RAILTRACK. (Google it if you don't understand the significance. Railtrack's original source of income is the British Taxpayer).

Considering the railway carriages are built in Germany, would that create jobs and assist growth here? Mad

In my book building infrastructure means, roads, hospitals, houses, schools.

Hi Mel
I could not agree more with you. we have been told that there is some £40 billion worth of infrastructure projects in the pipeline that looks impressive as Its is meant to. but are still not matched by actions at all. However, the Olympics shows what can be done in the Construction industry if its backed by the Government. but up to now its all been political rhetoric with no actions.

They would probably be built by migrant workers who will work for less and then send most of their cash back home

But your government is not building anything of note right now.
