This might not be the most terrifying economic story ever if we’re to be accurate about it:
The British economy is on track for the weakest year outside a recession since the second world war, as political turmoil and Brexit uncertainty dragged down growth, a Guardian analysis reveals.
A recession being defined as a sustained period of negative economic growth. So, we’ve got the weakest economy since 1945 except for those times it was weaker. Like 1956, 1961, the mid 70s, the later mid 70s, the early 80s, early 90s and late 00s.
We could also look at this in another manner. Economic growth is positive – in contrast to the dire warnings of rains of blood if we had the temerity to vote for Brexit. So we’re doing rather well then…..
