Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's some of that, but remember that chart Jerome had of government spending across the UK under Blair (think it was from the FT).  A lot of what was going on out in the Provinces revealed quite a bit of weakness in the private economy.  I think everything from the Midlands up had pretty much stagnated if you deducted the government's contribution.

Which isn't a bad thing.  Gotta put people to work.  But I think most of the private-sector stuff is in the South generally and Southeast in particular.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
