SCOTLAND BEATS MOST OF ENGLAND


Scotland, under a Scottish National Party government, has been performing better than most parts of the UK.

GDP Growth in UK regions 2000-2010

Scotland 2.2 %

South West of England 2.1%

English East Midlands 2.0 %

South East of England 1.8%

North East of England 1.6%

England's Yorkshire & Humberside 1.6%

North West of England 1.3 %

English West Midlands 1.1 %

Tony Blair's Labour government has been a disaster for the economy in England.

In the UK as a whole, in the years 2000 -2010, GDP rose by 1.7 % annually, the UK’s weakest performance since the 1940s.

In the UK as a whole, output in manufacturing contracted during the years 2000-2010, declining by an average of 1.2 per cent each year

(Noughties growth slowest since the war)
