Twats in search of some press copy. How else to explain this?
The Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) says Britain, which was the world’s fourth largest economy as recently as 2005, has slipped to seventh this year behind America, China, Japan, Germany, France and Italy.
By 2015, it predicts, Britain will be outside the world’s top 10, behind Russia, Brazil, India and Canada. Slow growth and a weak pound will be responsible for the slide.
Sigh, come along now. We don\’t measure relative sizes of economies using market exchange rates. We do it using PPP exchange rates.
Bit pissed off we hadn\’t been in the papers for a few days were we?
