It can only be solved by calling for more austerity:
Concerns the UK is “triple-dipping” back into recession rose on Friday, as a closely-watched gauge of the services sector showed output fell for the first time in two years.
Markit’s purchasing managers’ index (PMI) threw up a reading of 48.9 for December, where anything below 50 signals activity in the sector contracted.
Nick Beecroft, an analyst at Saxo Capital Markets, called it a “pretty disastrous” result.
My own research has found benefit claimants desperate to work, whose persistent efforts to find employment clashes with Osborne’s characterisation of those on welfare “sleeping off a life on benefits”.
He’s like a pasty non-tearful John Boehner.
By all means let’s do that here, triple dip recessions are clearly awesome.
