UK tax helps foreign carmakers

BBC News: UK trade gap widens in September

The UK trade deficit widened more than expected in September, led by a jump in car imports as Britain's scrappage scheme helped foreign carmakers. Cheers Gordon, now our tax is propping up other countries too. And wasn't the weak pound intended to help us export our way out of this mess? But the trade gap is widening, because manufacturing has been in decline because all our potential scientists and engineers work in banks. Clot!

"The UK trade deficit widened more than expected in September"

More inaccurate forecasting from the socially useless "experts"

anyone explain this statement?

"The increase in exports - which is a significant increase - is good news for the UK economy," said Trade Minister Lord Davies.

mark,

Heh, fu-knows. Dunno where the quote came from either as it's not on the original news wire - have the BBC done an interview with an intoxicated trade minister, made it up, or pulled it from an ancient report?

Funny.
