Will you be fact checking this? Could this apparent so called recovery be to the massive number of pensions and allowances not paid out in the last 18 months for very sad and obvious reasons.

Stop with your unresearched nonsense!!! Fkoff Dear BBC news, as we say in Glasgow, dae wan. Scottishindependence12 Is that actually truthful enough to warrant using as a headline word for word ? Last I checked UK is actually leading the way on all fronts at the wrong end of the league table. Is he high during working hours too ? Where’s he getting his so called facts and figures from ?

The nhs needs help, not blame for things it didn't do wrong.

Easy to achieve decent growth rates from the floor the UK economy plunged to. Few economies fared worse.
