I would normally post this but can't be bothered this morning (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-12577154).

I'd normally post a quote like the one below, but again can't be arsed. :ohwell


The UK economy shrank by more than previously thought during the last three months of 2010, revised figures suggest.

Gross domestic product (GDP) slipped by 0.6% in the period, according to fresh data from the Office for National Statistics.

Its initial estimate had suggested the economy had contracted by 0.5% - with heavy snow blamed for the slump.
The data may mean a rise in interest rates will not come as soon as thought.

If RBS were to be closed down it would possibly be just 0.3%

I'm sure the contractions are getting closer together.

But wasn't January a bumper month for growth, year on year?

Are we going to give birth to a banker?
