The British Chamber of Commerce is talking up the economy, no bad thing in principle when the policies in place are correct but the policies in place are far from correct. This is just a beat-up:
"It is absolutely vital that the improvement in business confidence is nurtured," said BCC director general David Frost.
There it is - the reason they're talking this bullsh. We've been committed to unbelievable debt, there is absolutely no sign of new businesses in any numbers or established businesses expanding, the tax codes snuff out economic life and everyone's groaning under the socialist yoke.
That's what's happening in Britain, along with a further contracting economy. Get the socialist yoke off Britain's neck, make the tax code attractive, rein in the council's greed in revenue raising from rents, re-establish the nexus between salaries and the costs of goods and services plus housing and vehicles, cutting out the bankers' credit factor and we might be up and running.
But for the BCC to just talk up the economy for no sound reason is further nurturing the disease. It's irresponsible and disingenuous self-delusion.
