Brexit has already fucked our economy - Our currency is bollixed and our exports and manufacturing haven't risen to counter that.

Regardless of whether you think it's right/wrong/pink/grey/hard Brexit has thus far been a financial disaster.

This is a normal post Isn't unemployment currently at a 42 year low?

This is a normal post Nope, not at all.
The problem with the official rate is that it falls if an unemployed worker hasnít sought a job in the past four weeks or canít start one in the next fortnight. Once they stop seeking work, fewer people are classed as unemployed but no jobs have been created.

So you're right in that this government are the best so far at redefining what being unemployed means. I know people aren't keen on links to "left wing" sources, so I'm just using right wing ones or academia.
