Interpretation depends on what a decline in energy production means in seasonally adjusted data. The 0.7% decrease looks like a statistical error – Industrial Production has been effectively ‘flat’ for five years? Fourteen point two per cent! 14.2% Methinks the humble Irish Citizenry deserve two votes this year: one for here and the neolib captured FG Taoiseach Kenny and Industry Minister Bruton who desire US tax systems … … and one in the US elections as Hibernia has been an effective ‘state’ for some time … Little wonder Simon Harris, Fine Gael, does not wish to pursue DEBT RELIEF for the humble citizenry … NOT ONE CENT of odious debt relief … FG record on this issue while in office: NOT ONE CENT OF DEBT RELIEF Looking on the bright side … it ain’t over yet! http://mic.com/articles/85541/nasa-study-concludes-when-civilization-will-end-and-it-s-not-looking-good-for-us#.6BEUAVidg text from Blind Biddy in Croke Park: C’mon “The Micks” http://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/sport/gaa-bosses-step-in-to-stop-vote-on-removing-british-army-team-715281.html Reasonable but helped by the fall in oil price and the weakness of the \Euro, one off effects. @BWS snp500 sales have been flat for the last 5 years.
