O.K. so this is another of my non-astronomy observations – sorry – but I am getting really cheesed off with the current Government thinking we are all a complete bunch of idiots.
So we have UK economic growth of 0.6% as measured over the last quarter – do we really? So if you can measure to 0.6% you must be able to measure with an accuracy of at the very least 0.1%. This cannot be above the noise level and these numbers are basically completely meaningless – but it does allow the Government to give the impression that there is some growth (even if it is tiny) and makes everyone feel good and believe that the Government is on the right track. Well that’s the idea anyway. Trouble is, even Joe Bloggs has sufficient intelligence to know this is just a pile of garbage.
