Unemployment Rate Lowest Since 1975

Worth keeping on about this. During the referendum Osborne and the Treasury said unemployment would rise by 500,000 in the immediate aftermath of a Leave vote. Today’s new figures:

  • Unemployment fell 57,000 between April and June 2017
  • 157,000 fewer than for a year earlier
  • Unemployment rate is 4.4%
  • Down from 4.9% for a year earlier
  • The lowest since 1975

It was a big fat fib…

Quote of the Day
