Economic recovery?

The UK's GDP growth figures were released today, with the 0.8% figure between July and September better than most analysts expected.

Growth is down from the last quarter, but that is to be expected given that figure was artificially inflated by a boost in the construction industry.

The public remains unsure over George Osborne's planned cuts as they are yet to become fully tangible.

The government is placing much of its hopes on a strong private sector-led recovery and continued economic growth to mitigate inevitable job losses in the public sector.
