PM David Cameron drops in at booming business in Crawley

First published in News

The Prime Minister came to Sussex to show that business is booming in Britain.

A day after official figures showed the national unemployment rate had dropped sharply to 7.1%, David Cameron visited the headquarters of ventilation manufacturer Vent-Axia in Crawley where he met and chatted with staff.

The company has recently created 26 new jobs by moving production back to the UK from China.

Crawley MP Henry Smith joined the Conservative premier on the tour of the premises in Fleming Way, Crawley.

Every official economic indicator shows that the UK is getting back to good times.

This must be a nightmare for Labour because it is in their interest for people to feel bad about the economy.

Expect plenty of anecdotal, as opposed to factual, stories coming out from the opposition parties to try and discredit what is looking more and more like a sensible and justified Tory economic strategy.

Of course some people will be suffering or doing less well than they once were - but this is always the case in any economy under any government.

Any sencible person knows figures can be made to look any way you want.For example crime is officially down in Brighton and Hove but in reality its dramatically UP especially after dark,its just that after the cuts we have very few police on duty after dark to record any crime,the local police stations have closed down and the police online report form gets ignored as I found out last year so its good for official crime figures as even the public find it difficult to report crime.The same is happening with other figures.Not many cities can yobs go burning out cars for hours but it happens here.No matter which of the three main parties release figures they can be made to read anything you want you just don't include bad elements.The poorest are getting hit the hardest and will again when interest rates rise,but the very people that caused the problems Bankers,MPs are ok they are set for massive bonuses and pay rises.I am an accountant by the way the government figures are all a ploy for votes in coming elections.No doubt just before election time funding for the RSCH will be announced too that's the way the much the same main parties work.

Fabulous, you have made my argument for me.

"Booming" is one of those words like "scorcher" and "plod" that you don't seem to see outside of cheap tabloid headlines (on which the Argus seems to enjoy modelling itself).

That nice Mr Cameron can get a job after 2015 writing fairy stories - he is very good at them.

My pay has risen - no it has not!
Unemployment is down - yes, it is, if you want a zero hours, part time, minimum wage job!
Balance of payments figures - so bad it makes you weep.
Borrowing - at record levels, despite that promise from nice Mr Osborne.
And we won the argument yesterday on green house gas emissions in the E.U. - except we didn't (and by the way, I don't vote Green, before you ask!) - so much for our Europe ministers promise, yesterday - he was outvoted by everyone else.

Success? Yes, if you are a Banker, or rich - otherwise you are part of the 99%.
