    Were not comparing anything to March 2009 though.

    Maybe I should have added "spin away people" to the opening post?

    GDP is seasonally adjusted so if they are increasing I fail to see how you can point that to negative TBH.

    Anyway it is 40% of all data not retail sales missing. Last prelim was +0.1 final was + 0.4.

    With exports increasing etc I really do not think we are going to dip back in to recession this quarter.

    I am sorry if that does not fit with your view of the world.

    But what about exports
    K auto production rose 90% yoy in March. The industry produced 316,067 vehicles in Q1, a 72.7% yoy increase.
    • Total UK auto sales figure jumped 27% yoy in March to 397,380 units, although scrappage incentive scheme ended in February 2010. Sales growth abated from 57% yoy in February and may fall further without incentive support.

    it is not all just shopping GD but I will highlight 1 word for you....

    Remember the last prelim I would stop beating your negative drum again we know what happened last time.

    As the scrappage scheme brought forward purchases.

    0.2% is nothing really, it just dissapears into the noise.

    Who is getting personal, I like growth the figure does not upset me. It is up for revision again before the final version.

    UK still not in recession does not upset me but then I was not predicting a double dip.;)

    Wy do people attach so much importance to these figures? 0.2% is nearly a rounding error. The most important figure is surely the level of unemployment. When there's a large net increase in the amount of private sector jobs being created across the economy, we'll know we have a real recovery.
