There is not the Manufacturing and Industrial base anymore, these have been sold down the river by consecutive Governments (all Colours) by PM's and Ministers that do not have a clue, and neither have they the Industrial Experience to really understand the importance of their decisions.
Isnt it time to elect a Government where the leader has got dirt on his hands from real labouring?
Unfortunately NONE of the main Political Leaders has done a proper day at work.... just look at the coalition leaders, what a bunch of chinless wonders they are!!! Cameron and his "Puppet" Clegg - seriously, just who do they represent. As for Labour - dont even go there, talk about selling the Family Silver for a moment of glory.
Minor rant over - sort out the Bankers and you will sort out the problems IMO
The UK economy has returned to recession, after shrinking by 0.2% in the first three months of 2012.
A sharp fall in construction output was behind the surprise contraction, the Office for National Statistics said.
A recession is defined as two consecutive quarters of contraction. The economy shrank by 0.3% in the fourth quarter of 2011.
BBC economics editor Stephanie Flanders says it "adds to the picture that the economy is bumping along the bottom".
She said economic output was slightly smaller now than it was in the autumn of 2010.
