Out of touch with reality
IT used to be that people looked up to and respected those in authority. Sadly that is no longer the norm and when we get moronic comments from a deputy governor at the Bank of England it is hardly surprising.
Ben Broadbent has described the economy as having entered its “menopausal” phase, being past peak productivity.
Not only was his choice of metaphor offensive but his comments about productivity come at the same time as figures from the Office for National Statistics suggest that Britain’s jobs market is continuing to defy expectations.
They show that employment has hit a record high and wages have grown at the fastest pace since 2015.
I’m afraid Project Fear 2 is alive and well and living in the higher echelons of Remoaners. But they are out of touch with both reality and the mood of the country.
Theresa May may not be moving as fast or boldly as I’d like but we are still heading for the EU exit door and roll on prosperity.
