It's reported crime too, no accounting for the people who don't get a crime number, unfortunately, so many people believe what they read, so much manipulating of figures.
Crime down......Only reported crime
Unemployment down, under employment UP ( part time work)
There are over 9 million people in this country economically inactive between the age of 16 and 65
Inflation down....have you ever seen what the inflation basket is made up of?
Scroll down half way, talk about cooking the books lol.
