    Default UK Contraction worse than thought

    I would normally post this but can't be bothered this morning.

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

    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.
