Workers can’t see a recovery

I THINK that the Office of National Statistics should be renamed the office of propaganda.

Running scared of UKIP the official line is that we are at the start of an economic recovery, what recovery?

I am employed by an international British company that is in the FTS top 100, boasting an annual turnover of £10bn a year. Neither I nor any of my colleagues, in spite of having more work given to us have had a pay rise for almost two years.

Statistics can be manipulated and spin-doctored to make them look better than they actually are.

I don’t know anyone personally who can see any improvement in their own circumstances, but I only move among the ordinary people, the workers.
