    Well stagnation seems to be the key word here like happen in Japan since the '90...

    Meanwhile in real Britain pensioners have to plan a head if they will buy food or turn the heating on next winter...

    Sad, really sad...

    Once UK the lion of the seas with the most powerfull fleet the world ever known and a world economic power, now reduced to a little hungry lap dog of UZAMEX...

    How deep to the bottom of the barrel a nazion can fall???

    What a shame that the present Dany B is not the one with a brain: I do wish he would come back I could at least get some sense out of him on technical matters.

    This one is showing his Nazi heritage with 'nazion'.

    Plus the post itself is utter crap.

    @1: Danny-boy, that 0.5% is great for borrowers from the banks. Inflation below 2%? And that's bad? If you actually read the whole article, instead of the headline, you'd understand that inflation is currently well below 2%, in fact it's about 0.5% at the moment in the UK. If that's bad, what do you have to say about 30% below the poverty line, 38% inflation and negative GDP?

    If 2.6% growth is stagnation then what the hell is Argentina?

    Economic collapse.

    Nice try Dany but your Argentinean education is showing.

    UK: growth with no inflation - is bad says Dany
    Argentina: inflation with no growth - is good says Dany

    I rest my case.

    I have to admit, the Dany @1 does seem inferior to the other Dany we sometimes see - this one just regurgitates the standard Arg. charges.

    Dunny, I am a British pensioner and dont know of anyone at all like you describe. Just saying these things doesnt make them true. Where I live the average pensioner income is about $60000. Suck on that twat! And, by investing your savings into British shares its easy to get 4.5% tax free so low interest rates is not a problem to anyone and it means that mortgage payers have historically low payments. Unemployment here is 2.5% . The only people that are poor are the scroungers and the Scotch and tbey are leaving soon.
