Labour Economic Collapse vs Coalition Recovery - UK Election Forecast 2015 - VideoElectionOracle / UK General Election Apr 04, 2015 - 06:14 PM GMT
The last ONS GDP statistics release before election day revised UK economic growth higher for 2014 to 2.8% from the previous estimate of 2.6%, against 1.7% for 2013. The UK economy is now growing at its fastest pace since 2006 and leads the G7 countries prompting George Osborne to tweet “GDP revised upwards from 2.6% to 2.8% for 2014. Confirms UK as clearly fastest growing major advanced economy.” Whilst Ed Balls responded “This is the slowest recovery for 100 years and the Tories have failed to deliver the sustained rises in living standards they promised.” Though conveniently forgetting that the economy was recovering from the last Labour governments economic collapse.
Therefore this video analysis compares the economic performance of the current Coalition government against that of the last Labour government in terms of GDP growth, debt & deficit, government spending, unemployment and the implications for the outcome of the May general election. Also includes trend analysis of current opinion polls seats projections from a range of mainstream forecasters.
