The economists seem to getting it wrong time and time again. How can we trust them with house price forcasts.

What implication could this have with interest rates. Anybody tell me?

Oil imports fuel record trade gap

Britain was a net exporter of oil for the fifth month in a row

Suring oil imports have propelled Britain's trade deficit with the rest of the world up faster than expected, to a new record for November.

The trade gap in goods and services widened to £5.96bn ($10.45bn) from a deficit of £5.05bn in October, said the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The November figure was more than £1bn higher than economists' forecasts.

The goods trade gap with non-EU countries also widened to £3.02bn in November from £2.28bn in October.

Economists had forecast a deficit of about £2.5bn.
