The Mail has a good round of TUC bashing in its pages this morning.

It's the Office for Budget Responsibility that says so. This is their data:


This shows they now expect:

- GDP to be lower;

- The balanace of payments to be worse;

- Inflation to be higher;Employment to be lower;

- Unemployment (ILO measure and claimant count) to be higher;

- Average earnings to be lower; and

- Household disposable income to be lower.

Every single one is a good reason for coming to today’s March for the Alternative.
