'potential Error' Delays Gdp Data

Recommended Posts

2 week delay?

:ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

I guess they sent the usual memo to Liam Byrne's office asking for the number and are still wondering why they've not had a reply back.

How many times has this happened in the past?

If it has happened in the past was it because the data was really bad?

Surely the ONS under Labour haven't been double counting?

If it hasn't happened in the UK before any precedents from other nations when GDP figures have been delayed?

So says the BBC

"It is important to ensure the national accounts are right, rather than disseminate statistics that might be subject to question over their quality," said ONS director general Stephen Penneck.

"We are really sorry that we have had to do this and apologise for the inconvenience. We wil learn from this to prevent it happening again."[/quote]

nicely trivialised apology there.

Yeah right, I smell a rat. What a surprise looks like the figures need extra massaging.

No need for them to apologise. I've never believed them anyway.

Would a stong indication of GDP growth be good for the current austerity pushers, given that it'd have been "the right thing to do?"

Are you telling me you can't read Greek? Bring back classical education.

It says UK = Greece. They call the UK "Anglia". Gits.

Its all about PISTEUO(gk)

And there is not much of that around since the banksters destroyed the economy.

Some. ;)

I was really asking if our ONS numbers are delayed 'cause they have a national strike today and hence haven't sent the number over.

They will probably restate GDP and we'll find we have been in recession since 2007.

That's piss funny

A "potential error" has forced the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to delay the publication of the latest GDP figures, due on Wednesday.

their quotes marks have made my day.

We're doomed!

I've typeset Greek for a living for 13 years (theological books and journals) and I still can't read the bloomin' stuff.

I know the difference between rough and smooth breathing and when to use a final sigma. Does that help?

Right, I'm calling it. It's about time I had a "black" thread and this looks to be a goody.
