British economy is best in the world, outstripping US, Japan and EU

New figures show that the British economy is now the best in the world, with growth outstripping all other major economies, including the US, Japan and, far less surprising, the rest of the EU.

Britain’s economy grew even more this year than previously thought. The Office for National Statistics confirmed the economy grew by 0.8 per cent between April and June. But it revised UP its estimate for how fast it had grown over the last year to 3.2 per cent – from 3.1 per cent.

And the Bank of England revised upwards its forecast for UK GDP growth this year from 3.4 per cent to 3.5 per cent this week.

The rate of unemployment has also fallen from 6.6% to 6.5%

The British economy is now growing at the highest level since the end of 2007 - and faster than the US, Germany, France, Japan and Italy.

But as Britain soars ahead, its European rivals are falling behind. France has recorded zero economic growth - and Germany's economy SHRANK.

Part of Britain's economic success of late must lie with Tory Chancellor George's Osborne's cuts - the same cuts which have caused thousands of left wingers to take to the streets in protest.

Britain’s economy grew even more this year than previously thought - outstripping all other major countries, official figures revealed this morning.

The Office for National Statistics confirmed the economy grew by 0.8 per cent between April and June. But it revised up its estimate for how fast it had grown over the last year to 3.2 per cent – from 3.1 per cent.

It means the economy is now growing at the highest level since the end of 2007 - and faster than the US, Germany, France, Japan and Italy.

Chancellor George Osborne wants the next election to focus on the economy

The figures are a further boost to the Chancellor George Osborne who hopes to use the economic boom to bash Labour ahead of next year’s general election.

A survey published today suggests Mr Osborne’s message has some traction with the public – with voters giving most of the credit for the recent growth to the Tories rather than their coalition partners the Liberal Democrats.

Asked how much the coalition would benefit on election day from its record on the economy, 8 per cent thought it would get ‘significant credit’ and 44 per cent predicted ‘some credit’.

Voters thought that 65 per cent of the credit should go to the Conservatives and 35 per cent to the Liberal Democrats.

The latest growth figures reiterated that the UK had finally climbed out of its longest downturn since the war, with GDP finally surpassing the 2008 pre-recession peak by 0.2 per cent.

It contrasts sharply to the dismal picture in the eurozone, where growth ground to a halt over the second three months of the year after France managed zero growth, while the German economy shrank.

Overall, Britain is expected to record the strongest economic growth of any of the major world economies.

However, Labour have claimed the boom is not being felt by ordinary families – with wages actually falling by 0.2 per cent last year.

But today’s poll, published in the Times, shows that voters believe the issue of unemployment - at its lowest level since the end of 2008 - is more important than higher earnings.

More than half - 58 per cent - of those surveyed chose lower unemployment as the most important issue, while 40 per cent who opted for better pay.

It comes on the same day that another poll shows the Conservatives drawing level with Labour. A YouGov poll for The Sun puts both parties on 35 per cent of the vote, with Ukip on 12 per cent and the Lib Dems lagging on 8 per cent


Labour argues the economic recovery is not benefiting ordinary families, who have seen stagnant wages squeezed by inflation


Today’s figures also revealed that beleaguered construction industry did not perform as badly as had been thought, posting flat quarter-on-quarter growth compared to the initial estimate of a 0.5 per cent slump.

Figures also confirmed that growth in the April-June period was led by the dominant services sector, which represents three-quarters of output and grew one per cent quarter-on-quarter, while manufacturing could manage only 0.2 per cent.

The Bank of England revised upwards its forecast for UK GDP growth this year from 3.4 per cent to 3.5 per cent this week.

A Treasury spokesman said: ‘Today’s figures confirm that our economy has recovered all of the output lost in the great recession, and is now bigger than its previous peak in the first quarter of 2008.

‘The Government’s long-term economic plan is working, with the economy growing at its fastest annual rate in six years.’

I'll look forward to our 3.5% growth this year whilst Australia manages just 3%. Although even Australia is to do better than Canada this year. Canada is expected to see snail-pace growth of 2.3% this year.

No. It's what happens when you have a Tory like George Osborne running the economy, implementing the necessary cuts - unpopular on the Left - to get us out of the rut the Left got us in.

And judging by the dire straits the Canadian economy is in, I think it'll be a good idea for us to send Osborne over there to fix your economy.

What have we got to cry about? Our economy is booming and is powering ahead of the rest of the world like it did throughout most of the late 1990s and early 2000s, whilst Canada's economy continues to grind to a halt.

As for the Muslims - 50% of Muslim men, and 75% of Muslim women, in Britain live on benefits and are unemployed . Around 85% of Muslims live off the generous taxpayer (so it's not only the Scots)

Incredibly, in 2013 any Muslim man with more than one wife got an increase to his benefits - even though polygamy is illegal.


Britain sinking under unproductive Muslims costing 13+ billion a year

Posted on October 9, 2012 by Admin 88 Comments


[*Note. We encounter endless arguments by salafi libtards claiming there is no verification to these statistics although they are clearly verified under the links in Related]



Modest numerical calculations based on government statistics, wikileaks and media reports reveal that the British government spend a minimum 13+ billion a year from tax revenues on unproductive Muslims. Britain is expected to have more Muslims than all of Kuwait in less than two decades. While the government is trying to create 12 billion in annual cuts by targeting the handicapped, elderly, and poor amongst its own citizens, they have ignored a group that is highly overrepresented above anyone else in welfare exploitation. Sweden appears to be gripped in a similar situation with the country drowning in Muslim related expenses.

The Daily Telegraph reported in 2012 that 75% of all Muslim women are unemployed while 50% of all Muslim men are unemployed (67.5% total) - a staggering 350% rise from 13% for men and 18% for women in 2004 . Muslims are also on sick leave more than anyone else, with 2001 figures revealing that 24% of females and 21% of males claim disability. Muslims are the most likely among all religious groups to be living in accommodation rented from the council or housing association (28%); 4% live rent-free (2004 figures). As if this is not enough, the total prison population in the UK amongst category A and B criminals (third degree criminals) is now 35-39% Muslim.



Since current statistics fail to clarify how many Muslims actually collect benefits, and whether unemployment figures include those on disability and in prison, only a crude estimate can be made. In spite of this our calculation is based only on basic, lowest payouts in Britain, meaning most additional paypits that Muslims would be entitled to are not included. The indications are nevertheless shocking: roughly 4.25 million Muslims, or more than 85%, live off tax payers (2012 unconfirmed estimate increased the Muslim population number from 3 million to 4.25 ). If we average this with a simple, quick calculation of the minimum benefit payment of 67 a week granted in Britain for adults, at least 284,750,000 per week (1.139 billion per month) is spent from taxpayers on Muslims who barely contribute anything whatsoever to Britain’s revenues – except making more Muslims.

The calculation is not detailed enough to include housing benefits, childcare support, medical care and other coverage. We can estimate that only in unemployment support, Muslims cost the British government at least 13+ billion a year.

A more detailed calculation need to be made when there are clearer records at hand. At present the government will not publish current, clear and defined numbers and we had to find them through different sources most of it coming from wikileaks (see below). The older numbers are inaccurate and highly understated since data have shows that the Muslim population tend to double in less than a decade (in 7 years).

If the same population growth continues in a steady flow, by 2030 Britain will have a 40% Muslim population. And who will feed and house them? With this type of parasitic addition to society there is simply nowhere for the British economy to go but downhills. As if that is not bad enough, 32 percent of Muslim students (born in the UK) believe killing in the name of religion is justified; 54 percent wanted a Muslim Party to represent their world view in Parliament, and 40 percent of young Muslims in the UK want the country to be governed under Sharia law (2004 report).

I'll just pick one thing out of all that for the time being as I'm heading off to bed:

Your economy is apparently doing so well now that you have a Tory running the show and that seems to make the difference while PO'ing the Lefties... Then mention that you guys should send him to Canada to fix Canada's mess.

You do realize the guy running Canada for the last few years is also a Tory right?

If being a Tory/Righty/Conservative/Republican was all that was needed to make economies great, you'd think you wouldn't be bashing Canada's economy or finger wagging at Australia's either.... As both are lead by Conservative PM's.

Kind of throws your logic into a chum bucket as all their cuts and p*ssing off the left who created the mess have amounted to sweet fk little by your standards.

And some more food for though:

The Global Recession that started in the US, affected pretty much every other country and all that good stuff?

Yeah, that happened under Bush's watch and then handed to Obama to fix up, whom now has taken on all the blame for it happening, as well as not fixing it up as fast as expected or as well as some think he should have.

If the British economy is a piece of **** I wonder what that makes the Canadian economy.

How does it feel to know that Canada's little, sluggish economy is merely a tiny little appendage to the US economy, and should the US suddenly disappear tomorrow Canada's economy would suddenly be on a par with that of Finland.


Quote:

Britain was not responsible for German nefariousness.

Also, look at the amount of British dead in those wars compared to Canadian dead. Canada's effects on the outcome of WWI and WWII is pretty much the effect that a pea fired from a peashooter has on a charging rhinocoeros.

Obviously the British Tories are better at running an economy ruined by left-wing (Labour) economic policies than Canadian Tories are.

Quote:

Most of the economic woes that Britain suffered recently were as a result of a left-wing Labour government and its Scottish Chancellor spending money we didn't have, putting our finances, that were healthy under the Tories in the late Eighties and Nineties, in a parlous state.

Blaming Britain's economic woes on a "global recession that started in the US" is pretty much par for the course for those who are in denial that our previous left-wing Labour Government (dominated by a Scottish Mafia, including the guy who ran the economy) are to blame for our worst recession since the war.

You need to realise that the job of all Tory Governments in this country is to fix the economic mess left by Labour. Thatcher had to do it after Labour socialist policies in the disastrous 1970s brought the country to its knees. Now Cameron's lot are having to clean up the mess left by the previous Labour government.

Canada had it easy in both world wars, like America did. It's something you keep forgetting. I just wonder how Canada and America would have fared had they had Nazi Germany on their doorstep, threatening them with invasion and bombing all their major towns and cities every night for nine months.

Go on then. Give us the figures. Give us the proof. Disprove the fact that in 2013 the UK recorded an increase of 22% in inward FDI.

More FDI pours into Britain every year than any other EU country. In fact, Britain ranks SECOND only to the US for FDI in the world, much more than the supposedly economically perfect Canada. That is, unless you can disprove that.

Do they? It's obviously good writing, with all the FDI that's flooding into the coutnry.
