Britain’s economy is growing faster than those of every other major developed country, the International Monetary Fund has disclosed.
In a vindication of George Osborne’s economic plan, the IMF upgraded its forecast for UK growth to 3.2 per cent this year and 2.7 per cent in 2015.
The upward revision of 0.4 percentage points in 2014 and 0.2 percentage points in 2015 from the last forecast in April was the largest upgrade of any major western economy for both years. Britain is expected to grow faster than countries including America, Germany, France and Canada.
Hmm. Of course this really proves that we need higher taxes like France does. No doubt about it at all, eh?
