The markets forced interest rates to stay low, not government policy.They have delivered.
Interest rates have been kept low
We also haven't been downgraded like Greece etc
We have paid 1/4 of the debt back Labour left us with in 2 years
We have better employment figures
Unemployment is down
I think the tories have done a good job so far to come in and sort the mess out, things are on the mend, although it takes more than 2 years to sort labours 13 out, and also it doesn't help with the Libs in who leak everything to the press.
We haven't been downgraded like Greece because we were never in the same kind of mess as Greece.
We have paid back 1/4 of the debt?? You do know that we are still borrowing £125 billion a year right?
The employment figures improved for 1 quarter after 7 bad quarters.
We have more unemployed now than we did when they came into power, all that is happened is that the numbers have been jiggled around with all the benefits changes.
Oh and you know your mighty employment figures improvement? It's all based on temporary work for the Olympics and part-time workers, you know most of those part timer workers contribute negative tax revenue right? Yep, after tax credits it turns out that we the taxpayer are actually paying alot of people more money to work than we would pay them if they stayed at home.
