Wile E Coyote economy well past the cliff edge
I was slightly surprised to see the Beeb reporting in such a dismal tone: The BCC's director general David Frost said the report was deeply worrying. There has been disappointing news on house building and mortgages "I am sending Alistair Darling and Gordon Brown a strong message from the businesses I meet every day up and down the country," he said. "To put more pressure on business would not only restrict business growth and hit the consumer hard, it would crush further what our economy is based on - confidence."
