From various sources:
RBS economists: 2017/18
RBC Capital: 2018
Jones Lang Lasalle: 2017
HSBC Economist forecast: 2018/19
Of course economics forecasts are tomorrow's chip paper. But the UK Government has staked its financial credibility on their being no recession.
With one, the Country's finances will be very quickly back in the mire of 2008/12 in terms of its overall deficit.
Considering the Tory domination of the political stage, why did they make such a bold gamble that could well lose them the next election with the economic credibility in ruins a la 1997?
