Disappointing figures on industrial production and construction in November have added to fears that the UK economy contracted in the last quarter of 2012. The index of production grew 0.3% in November, compared with October, but had been expected to grow more as some North Sea oil and gas production resumed following maintenance. Read full article

    No, no, no!!!

    You got this all wrong!! We are out of recession!! I've seen it for myself.. Came-moron and his little b*tch Nick Cleeg, sucking each other d**ks and falling over themselves to tell everyone that we are out of the recession..........

    Could it be that THEIR policies are tipping us into an un-heard-of Treble-dip recession???? After all they promised?? After all the back slapping and self congratulations?? all the cuts and the suffering they have caused??

    Just between me and you, I don't think that David Cameron is a real politician, and Nick Clegg is about as much use as tits on a boarhog. I did not vote for these idiots.......

    There is not a mountain in this world that is high enough for me to push them off, just to show my contempt of them and their policies that are, no arguments please, running this country into the ground......... clowns

    Yes it's incredible isn't it my Argentine friend. Even with our current problems we are the 6th largest economy in the world with the fourth biggest defence budget in the world and AAA credit rating. That's all while we are going through a bad patch. We will bounce back as we always do. What's your optimistic appraisal of Argentinas prospects?

    This is rubbish news.

    No matter how you want to “spin” this, it's cr*p. We are STILL in a recession. no matter what they say, no matter what they do, our economy hasn't recovered, and is not recovering.

    Came-moron and Clegg are ruining this country and that is the truth, no matter which way you f**king slice it.

    On a bright note, at least we can trust these figures.

    I don't see any international organisation asking the UK to stop lying and publish correct figures.

    That is not TRUE. UK is the best place to live. If not ask to the BBC. In UK you can abuse everyone you meet, and then sell a book after you die. Good News ! UK is moving to MALVINAS . Britts love justice in the South.
