Carney’s rose-spectacled survey of the economy as Parliament returns does not convince

by Michael Meacher.

The UK economy’s ticking over fine: that’s the view of Carney, Osborne’s man. So that’s alright then. Or is it? With time-honoured spin we were treated to the most optimistic scenario on every count, with the flip-side downturn kept carefully out of sight.

by Phil Burton-Cartledge.

By their friends shall ye know them? This old adage has got some folks feeling a bit uncomfortable as the new Syriza government apparently cosies up to Mother Russia. This is by no means a new thing.
